Need weblogic to see java file changes automatically without doing an ANT build everytime
Posted on 2007-10-09
I've recently been assigned to a project that is using weblogic 9.2.
Its a j2ee application that has several ejb's. I'm using eclipse editor and everything is installed locally on my linux box.
In past projects i've used tomcat, and I have been able to point tomcat at the projects source (in my eclipse workspace) and then when I change a .java file the changes are picked up automatically (reloadable). On this project however the other developers do an ant build each time a file is changed which can take a minute or more! There has to be a way to point weblogic at the source or do something that allows changes to be seen by the server automatically. Weblogic is in developer mode ( i read you need that for autodeploy to work ), but i'm not sure how to get weblogic setup to "see" my changes.
I'm not so familiar with weblogic or ejb's but if anyone out there can help me get a reloadable type setup with this project I would be greatful!
