equiv of tomcat /shared/ location for jboss

darren hartford Expert

hey all,

I ask a long time ago on the jboss as forum (or maybe stackoverflow, I don't recall now) about if you had a spring-based application such as alfresco (and many others, not just alfresco) where:

 

1) the application usually has a .war binary deploy.

2) the configs are usually located in a tomcat_home/shared/  location  (usually under /shared/classes/myconfig.properties for example).

 

This allowed the application .war binary to be updated/replaced regularly without loosing your current configurations stored in the /shared/ location.

 

However, I never found out how to deploy these kinds of applications to jboss with the same level of agility - binary war's get updated regularly, while configs are still elsewhere in the equivalent of tomcat_home/shared/.  This would avoid the need of requiring exploded war deployments that would require re-applying of configs after .war updates.

 

Could someone enlighten me please :-)
