hi there ranchers! 'ope you can help me with this...This is bothering me for quite some time now.
Does JBoss permit "exploded" deployment of files, meaning i dont need to "ear" and "war" the files, i'll just copy the whole package?Ive already done this with Weblogic. I just want to know if anybody had already tried this kind of deployment? Thanks...

partially solution for:
in file conf/jboss-service.xml:
<attribute name="URLs">
deploy/, <add some file:/-URL comma separated>
in the defined additional deployment directory
your exploded web archive directorys name must
end with ".war" (-> JBoss-bug)
alternate hot deployer mbean (URLDirectoryScanner)
mentionned in the end of jboss-service.xml-file
did not worked correctly (-> JBoss-bug)

You should be able to create a "myapp.war" or "something.ear" DIRECTORY and put your files in there. I do this all the time with JBoss and jetty. I don't use tomcat, so I can't verify the prior posters comment that you have to configure other things to make it work in that case. But, based on my understanding of how things work, it should work regardless of what web container you have plugged in...
I agree. Here's the link:
