Hey Guys,

I'm starting to study for the SCBCD certification and I'm getting really bored when building my test cases with Eclipse+JBOSS.

The problem is that every time I make a change in the JSP (even a small one) Eclipse redeploys the entire WAR to JBOSS... And that takes a considerable time to reload...

Is there a way to avoid this WAR redeploy? I'm not hoping to avoid that with my EJBs, however, I thought there would be something faster for the JSP changes... How do you guys deal with this issue?

Thanks a lot,
Wagner

What about if you tell Eclipse to deploy in an exploded fashion.

If compressed into a single WAR, the container probably notices the timestamp change and simply reloaded the app.
If exploded into a directory, perhaps the container will just reload that file.

P.S. I'm new to EJB, so sorry if this sounds a little naive.

Dear Danda,

\server\default\tmp\deploy\

I deal woth this by apcking my app to an ear file, and above is a place where Jboss put tmp application file, you could copy and paste your changed jsp directly to that folder. (your application name will be tmpxxxxYOUR_APLLICATION_NAME.ear)

Thanks Mark. My question then would be: where should I place my JSPs and EJB classes?

Thanks Nguyen. I understand your suggestion but I was expecting something more automated from Eclipse... What I expect to see is once I clicked "Save" in either a JSP (or a Java class) they would get automatically uploaded to JBOSS (I think this is called hot-swap).

Currently when I change a jsp or a java class Eclipse notice that and redeploy the two projects: an WAR file for the web project and a JAR file for the EJB. I've already tried creating an Enteprise Project that wrap the two projects and creates a EAR file, but the behavior is the same: redeployment of the whole project for any simple change (ie. change a comment in a log)! That really slows my tests...
