cool this touch feature is being added.
A couple of questions though:
1) Why is both the manifest.mf and web.xml being touched for ear
deployment ? The war is inside the ear so just touching the ear should
be enough; doesn't touching both trigger risk a double-restart ?
2) We should also check that if the war is inside an ear the ear
descriptor should be touched; and if not in an ear the war descriptor
should be touched. Do we do that already ?
3) The code scans *all* project files multiple times - that can't be
very efficient for large projects.
Since these projects knows where their descriptors are why are we
scanning for them ?
4) btw. seam-gen uses this for ear's:
<target name="restart" depends="explode" description="Restart
Why did you choose manifest.mf for ear ?
