Every publish requires a complete build a redeploy of my ear. Is there a way, in glassfish, to incrementally deploy. For example, in JBoss and Resin you can deploy "exploded" and replace individual files (jsp, servlet, etc.) and the application server will integrate the changed file into the running application on the fly. Can you do that with glassfish? If so, how long would it take an average programmer, like myself, to upgrade the plugin to deploy exploded?
My ear is over 200MB. Every little change requires a grueling build and deploy.
