the deploytool coming with J2EE RI 1.3.1 detects changes to the beans class files. But why doesn't it detect if I changed the ejb-jar.xml file. After I change it I always have to remove the EJB-JAR from the ear file and add it again. That is really annoying.
Any better suggestions
dude... RI stuff is only used to provide as a *SAMPLE* tool that you can try out....
for development or real *TRY OUT*... use something else..
like jboss / websphere / weblogic.. etc..
i think still... the best way is to use ANT as deployment tool and a text editor...
