Chapter 3. Deployment

3.1. Deployable Application Types
3.2. Standard Server Configurations

Deploying applications on JBoss AS is very easy. You just need to copy the application into the JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy directory. You can replace default with different server profiles such as all or minimal. We will cover those later in this chapter. JBoss AS constantly scans the deploy directory to pick up new applications or any changes to existing applications. So, you can "hot deploy" application on the fly while JBoss AS is still running.
