IntelliJ forces me to name the artifact xxxxx.war although it's an exploded directory being created by IDEA.
Maven also produces xxxxx and xxxxx.war in the target directory. Hence I need to rename the exploded
dir to avoid a name collision.
Generating a rebel.xml in IDEA gives:
Seems fine at first but the problem is. IDEA packages the classes into the exploded webapp.
This makes JRebel load the classes twice.
A possible fix:
This works for Intellij IDEA users of the project (yes the rebel.xml is checked into vcs), but not
for the poor souls using Eclipse i.e.
If IDEA didn't force me to use a .war extension I could point the exploded dir to the maven created
Any ideas of a better solution?
