JBOSS Doesnt reload the Java files

Hi Friends,

If I change (update/edit) a Java file in my workspace and do a ANT build the changes are not reflected on the server.

However the JSP changes are reflected.

Is there a way I can update the changes to the server when my server is on.

I am using JBOSS 4.x

I know this can be done when the debugger is on.


Thanks and Regards

Isn't hot deployment working in your Jboss server?
Or are you running your application in some way that is by passing hot deployment?

If you deploy by directory (that is you point your jboss to your build directory) the hot deploy is somewhat fuzzy.

Build a war-file and deploy it on the server and have autodeploy selected.

Another way is to run JBoss inside your IDE. Then the IDE will handle the reloading of classes. In Eclipse, you can even do code-insertion on already instantiated classes.
I agree. Here's the link:
