Redeployment of Applications Auto-Deployed in Exploded Format
You can also dynamically redeploy applications or application components that have been auto-deployed in exploded format. When an application has been deployed in exploded format, the Administration Server periodically looks for a file named REDEPLOY in the WEB-INF directory. If the timestamp on this file changes, the Administration Server redeploys the exploded directory.
If you want to update files in an exploded application directory, do the following:
1. When you first deploy the exploded application, create an empty file named REDEPLOY in the WEB-INF directory.
2. To update the exploded application, copy the updated files over the existing files in that directory.
3. After copying the new files, touch the REDEPLOY file in the exploded directory to alter its timestamp.
When the Administration Server detects the changed timestamp, it redeploys the contents of the exploded directory.
