 Description  « Hide

The administration GUI interface (admin-gui) does not allow the administrator to
reload web applications without doing it manually.

Glassfish has dynamic reloading by touching a .reload file in the
domains/domain1/applications/j2ee-modules/webAppName context root directory.

At first, one could allow the administrator to reload a web application by
clicking a "Reload" link which is next to the "Launch | Redeploy" links at the
same line as the web application in the ''. Dynamic reloading
(touch .reload) should be used since it is currently stable.

Thanks for submitting the patch.
We will test it out and check that in.

comments from the deployment team:
1. The .reload functionality is only supported for archive deployment. So if the
admin console does not limit this use only to archive deployment, the code
itself needs to check for whether this module is directory deployed.
2. The .reload functionality is only supported for DAS and not for EE/cluster
environment at this point.

For #1, GUI should do the checking and put up the 'reload' button in the table
when it applies
To address #2, this reload enhancement will ONLY available for developer
profile, will not put this in cluster profile.

Senthil, please change the code accordingly before commit.

azawaai, do you have any comment ?
