I'm on Jboss EAP 4.3 and I have my own server with an EAR deployed. The EAR contains multiple WAR files. I notice that each time I start up the server, it explodes the contents to the tmp folder, which is good. Now if I bring down and bring back up Jboss, it first deleted the tmp folder and rebuilds it. My EAR file is fairly large and takes a good 15 minutes to explode. Is there any way to persist the tmp folder between server restarts?
