I want to be able to update / add a new class file inside a jar/war inside a ear file. Is there a way to do this using jar utility or using ant. This is because it takes time to FTP the ear from teh build server to the deployment server.
Thanks for your reply. If i want to update a class file within a .war which is inside a .ear file , then i need to extract the .war and update the class file in it and then update then updated war file into the .ear file. This is a three step process.
Is there a direct way to do this (one step process) i.e. update the class file directly inside the .war file (which is inside .ear file) without having to extract it to a temporary folder and update it?
