But I would like to know the effect on JBOSS performance with respect to the size of the deployed WAR file. We have a huge WAR file in our production server(keeps on increasing due to exported files dumped inside its subfolder) and wonder if the increasing size of the WAR folder adversely affects the jboss performance.
Any suggestions on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
What kind of files? I have no idea what "exported files" is referring to. If they are not class files or configuration files or other files that need to be processed to deploy or run the application (in other words, if they are purely static files such as documents or images), then there should be no noticeable performance hit.
Thank You so much for your valuable suggestion. Just wanted to know if Jboss Deployment scanner would scan those static files too, placed inside the deploy folder. Or is it that the scanner scans only for the jsp and other dynamic files.
You were correct, I was talking about static files.
