Deployment-overlay is not working for an ear file in JBoss EAP 6.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I want to test the deployment overlay to modifiy a template.xhtml file inside my java application. Followed the below steps:

deployment-overlay link --name=eum_overlay --server-groups=SG_IHMS_APM --deployments=spb-voyage-2.0.0.ear

My problem is that in the ear file there is a war file and in this war file there is a template folder and in this folder a file called template.xhtml with a war file with folders inside it works ! but with ear file not !
