  • Along with our web apps, we have dozens of live custom registrations sites. In JBoss EAP 5 we could do a safe deploy that would pick up new content, but not touch the web.xml. This would prevent active users from getting logged off the site. With JBoss EAP 6, is there an equivalent safe deploy. If we build a site(test.war) and push the test.war.dodeploy along, all current active users on the site will get kicked off.
