Hey all,
In most other app servers i've worked with there is a directory you can drop in war/ear's into and the app server will auto deploy them for you.
I'm using websphere5 now and I was wondering if any of you know how to do something similiar drag and drop deploy war files instead of going through the web administration console? i'm currently running WS on my local machine.
I'm really looking to set up an easy build/deploy environment on my machine that I can write an ant script for and be done with.
Thanks!

u got 2 options
- use wsadmin scripting
$AdminApp install
- use JMX API
no ANT script available for deploying EAR/WAR. i thought ANT was for builds.

You can also write an xmlconfig script or wscp script that can be called by Ant. These two formats can restart the server for you too.

yes, even without deploying by dropping in a war i found the directory where my app is deployed too, the tricky thing was figuring out why my web.xml and ibm-*.xmi files were not being read upong updating them in WEB-INF, then i found that for some reason there are duplicates of those files for all deployed apps in the config dirctory structure.

Andre
<WAS_HOME>/installableApps - .ear files (back-up)
<WAS_HOME>/installedApps - expanded .ear WebSphere refers to this directory at runtime.
