This week's book giveaway is in the Reactive Progamming forum. We're giving away four copies of Reactive Streams in Java: Concurrency with RxJava, Reactor, and Akka Streams and have Adam Davis on-line! See this thread for details.
In few words, it creates a single monitored directory that listens for fully composed EAR files or application module such as WAR, EJB JAR files, or standalone resource adapter archive (RAR) files.
If you place EAR files inside this monitored directory, the EAR file is automatically deployed to the server. If you delete the EAR file from the monitored directory, that application is uninstalled from the server. If you place WAR or EJB jar files in the monitored directory, the rapid deployment tool generates the necessary EAR wrapper and then publishes that EAR file on the server. For RAR files, a wrapper is not created; the standalone RAR files are published to the server.
