I did not completely understand the question. As far as i know, there's nothing different you have to do with Eclipse to work with an exploded ear file deployed in JBoss. It's the same as working with any application deployed as an archive.

As i understand if i want to work in exploded mode i need to extract the ear and my jars (am i correct ? is there any tool or plugin that can do it for me?)
Extracting the ear is enough. Extracting the jars inside the ear is optional. As far as tools are concerned, Ant has the unjar/unwar task which can be used to exploding the archives. I guess maven too has a similar task. I haven't used maven so not sure the exact task names.

i work with eclipse and i want to be in debug mode , so when i change a class (or any other trigger) it will copy the changed class to the exploded ear in the server.
I havent tried this but i guess it will update the changes. If it doesn't then follow the steps mentioned here
