I have my application deployed, on a Linux box, with a Applications dir containing certain Jar ,war and ear files. Other directories are properties ( Containing config XML files), xsd ( containing xsds ), xsl ( containing xsls ), directory for logs, etc.
We were thinking of using System V packaging to package it all and deploy it on our clients machine. We just heard ( havent got time to talk to the contact person ) that the client does not use Sys V pkging, but uses a EAR file.
Does this make sense. Can u archive xml, xsds, etc in a ear and access it. My application accesses the files ( xml,xsd , etc ), as if it is on a file system. Can it access it in the same way, if it was in ear file.
