So far after using JBoss 4.0 for 6 months or so we’ve seen pretty good hot deploy response. Under 3 it was flakey and so you usually just restarted the server. Today we ran into a weird problem with a war file where a fix that had been added wasn’t getting picked up. After a couple of tries at redeploying it became time to resort to the usual tricks.
- Drop into the server/default/tmp and server/default/work directories and delete everything related to that war.
- Reboot the server itself
- Redeploy the war with a new name
So far none of these have worked so Monday we’ll have to get really creative. I just love finishing a week with an unsolved configuration issue. Really starts off the weekend on the right foot.
