I have tried to get the JBoss AS 7 integration to work with a JavaEE 6 exploded war - I had some success but I'm still not satisfied. Here is what I've done so far.
- In my maven (3.0.4) project I added a profile to be used inside Idea for providing an directory name ending with .war.
This at least made the local JBoss recognize and deploy the application.
- When changing the output directory to <jboss-home>/standalone/deployment/my-web.war (the latter dir I had to create manually) I could deploy the application, and after changing a class in my project and touching a file <jboss-home>/standalone/deployment/my-web.war.dodeploy the changed class was recognized (this way the application even gets redeployed - which is not exactly what I want).
I would like Idea's JBoss integration to do all this. Is there a way to achieve recognition of changed classes and / or ressources? The update command (CTRL+F10) doesn't work either, only when selecting "redeploy".
