I am facing an issue in deployment of EAR file ...to an INT server....the problem is that when the file is brought to the /opt/Websphere/AppServer/installableApps....dir via ftp.....then its file zie remains the same...but after the deploy process is complete on the INT server...the EAR file increases in size.....in the same dir in which it was deployed....so kindly help me out ...why the file size of the EAR file is increasing after the deployment process is complete...the app is running fine and everything else is fine too,,,,,just the issue is why is the size of the file increasing....it seems as if the EAR file rewrites itself....so plzplz help me out.....its urgent ...u can mail me on ...email@example.com thnks
Change it to read-only and make sure you're not running as root, of course, and tell me whether it's increasing its size. I'm skeptical, very skeptical. When you drop an ear on jboss, she expands the EAR in to a loose set of files under ...server/yourconfig/tmp, but the EAR should not change.
I think the issue is that Neha Dharni appears to be deploying their app onto WebSphere, not JBoss as the forum might suggest. WebSphere does create its own deployment code at deploy time, so that might be the cause.
