When I move application EAR file (which contains JAR and WAR) into deploy folder in JBoss 4.0.4 it is deploying it. I could see JBoss creating folder "reporting.ear-contents" under tmp\deploy folder. But it is not creating "reporting.jar-contents" folder under "reporting.ear-contents". I'm not understanding whyJBoss is not deploying JAR file. Appreciate any ideas.
Not sure this applies, but I have heard that hot deploy isn't 100% reliable. A book i recently read said do this at your own risk and certainly not in a production environment. Try shutting down the server and deploying and see if that works.
