Hotdeploy in JBoss 4

From what I understand if you just drop the war file in
/server/servername/deploy folder, it should automatically hot deploy?

Is there another step I need to do?

I tried overwriting a current war several times with an updated
version, and I never see anything show up in logs.

If you put your application in the /server/servername/deploy folder, the HDScanner service would automatically scan the updated applications by checking the TimeStamps and redeploy the application.

This also shows up in the server log as first it undeploys the application and re-deploys the same with the updated changes.

There is nothing else that needs to be done.

Sounds like someone turned off the hdscanner. What configuration changes were made to app server? Which version of 4? 4.0.x or 4.2.x?
