Fast Redeployment of Web Apps
By pelegri on Jan 28, 2006
Jean-François describes a development technique for reloading or restarting a Web Application under GlassFish by invoking operations on its WebModule MBean. JF had told me that this approach was "much faster" than the normal deploy cycle; specific numbers and comments on experience and practical limitations of the technique would be interesting.
Code and more details at Fast web application redeployment using JMX. Note that this is not supported, but if it was useful it might become so!
