who can tell me how i can deploy a "exploded" directory that is outside of the jboss installation?
if i deploy a war file that is outside of jboss box,i modify the "jboss-services.xml" file,but it don't work to "exploded directory".
thank you!

Hi zb,
do you have a special reason to leave the directory exploded instead of JARring it?

it is easy to debug,i can point it to the jbuilder project directory,if i modify the class within the project,i don't need to restart server.
certainly,jboss's hot deployment feature give me such convenience too(don't need to restart server).but you must package war file,the packaging speed of jbuilder is very slow.
when i use weblogic,i ususlly use the exploded directory to debug as i is very convenient,but i seem don't work to jboss,because i found that you must name the directory as "xxx.war",but the jbuilder directory can't be named as that.

Consider using ant to create your jars and/or copy your war directory to the jboss server. JBuilder integrates with ant: just add build script using add-files -- btw, investigate the use of Eclipse as your IDE since it has the same pricing structure as JBoss and, like JBoss, comes with a money-back guarantee.
NT/XP does not support symbolic links: as glaring as it is fundamental. If you use Ant you can just copy what you need and it is fast and easy. There is a ranch forum for Ant as well.
I agree. Here's the link:
