I had an interesting chat with Steve Button on the OTN OC4J Forum today that I thought others might be interested in, namely how to deal with the JEE redeployment issue of not bouncing the server and users on a new version of an application. An extract from the post:
"I'm currently researching solutions to JEE application redeployment, or more specifically when you want to update an existing deployed application on a JEE app server, how can you do so with minimal interruption to the users?
From my research on the internet I've found two approaches, one with the Oracle OAS camp, and another in the BEA Weblogic camp."
