This is with respect to the issue we are encountering with class loaders in JBoss Application Server. The problem statement is something like this.
An application EAR file is deployed on the JBOSS application server, this has files referring to classes present in another "Jar" file that is also deployed on the same application server. The issue arises out of hot deployment of the jar file. In this scenario the files in the EAR can't refer to the latest class files deployed as part of the "Jar" file. Is there a solution to this problem such that the latest loaded classes in the Jar can be referred from the EAR without the need to redeploy the EAR file.
