Hi all,
I am new to JBoss, and hence this might be a really stupid question - but I wouldn't know, if I didn't ask!
The product that I am working on at the moment, uses JBoss as the application server. Coming from Orion background, I am quite sure that Orion supports incremental deployment (deploying only the changed classes/components of an already deployed application). Now, my question is, does JBoss support incremental deployment? (from my experience, its redeploying the whole application everytime, which is quite slow!!)
Thanks,
Ashok.

I was also wondering few months ago about the same thing. Got no positive answer though, I was re-deploying everything, even if I modified a single java file only. It is a pain, agree. Can't help you with this one, but if you find a solution for this (I couldn't find it) please post it here.
thanks

On more research, I found that as JBoss claims, it does support hot deployment upto a certian level. However, at least in my particular case, hot deployment is either not properly implemented, or JBoss isn't good enough to handle the complex strucuture of the project!
Not too happy with JBoss at the moment!

If the followings are applicable to you,
1. You are using Eclipse.
2. You are the only in the development who get affected by the change of the code.

Following will be good option.

Use Eclipse debuger after starting up the JBoss server, once debuger starts the process handler will be with eclipse so if you just change the code and save it, will be take effect in the nature of the output.

This is the best solution I ever find with JBoss.
