How to Properly AutoDeploy Applications in GlassFish
By pelegri on Mar 10, 2006
Vince has been answering some questions on the GlassFish forum related to auto-deployment issues, so he wrote a blog entry about it. A good description of autodeploy is The Application Deployment Guide, specially this section. The bottom line seems to be that that you should be using autodeploy for JAR, WAR, RAR, or EARs.
Or use an IDE that manages the details for you, as it is described at NetBeans and Fast Deployments.
