I am running IDEA 9 with Jetbrains Maven and JBoss plugins. What I would want to do is to be able to see my changes to classes and resources instantly, that is to do exploded development with hot-swapping.
Is this possible?
My current situatiion is as follows:
When I check project structure after opening the project using pom.xml, IDEA says for few artifacts that 'META-INF/application.xml' file not found, which is understandable as application.xml is generated.
JBoss plugin with exploded target says: Artifact 'blaablaa-ear:ear exploded' has invalid extension.
Additionally, section 'Maven Support' in IDEA help says "IntelliJ IDEA's Make features are capable of filtering Maven resources. However, IntelliJ IDEA yet does not support filtering web resources." thus I am forced to use Maven at least partly in the build process.
In my current setup, I launch JBoss through the plugin, run package action after IDEA make and redeploy by hand so that changes to resources are updated. Is a better setup possible?
