Hot deploy file (page or jar) to Glassfish

view full story

http://serverfault.com – A long time ago I had used Websphere and if necessary we could drop a jar file into a directory on the server and it would use that one instead of the one located inside the deployed ejb.jar. It was used to deploy fixes in testing environments without having to create entire new builds. I was wondering if Glassfish offered such a possibility. Also things like web.xml (which is packaged in the EAR file, new jsf/java class file and xhtml file, possibly in a new directory supported by the new jsf class file. Or does Glassfish only support adding new files by creating a new build and deploy? (HowTos)
