Hi there,
I'm looking for solution for our web designer. She needs to work on our jsp pages but needs also to check the result on-line. We usually worked with Tomcat, which gave the possibility to modify the jsp pages on application not packed as war.

Once I drop the ear or war into the deploy folder, where does it unpack the jsp pages?
What would it be for you the best approach to use in order to let her to work without package and deploy the ear every time?

trying to decode a woman mind....

Go for exploded deployment. You can directly edit the jsps in the war and the changes will be immidiately picked up.

Thanks for your reply.
I'd like to suggest this link as well.

Would you suggest to keep the exploded application out of the deploy folder, such as home user directory (unix)?
I agree. Here's the link:
