Hi All!

I have an application which resides outside the JBOSS Server Folder.
Ideally if i need to deploy the application i might have to move it into the server/default/deploy folder but i want it deployed from outside.

I got the way out by specifying 

  |       <attribute name="URLs">
  |          deploy/,
  | 		file:/c:\user-21682\home\application\src\docroot.war
  |       </attribute>

In the jboss-service.xml file under the URLDeploymentScanner setting.

But the issue i am facing is that my folder name has to be docroot rather than a 'docroot.war' 
This is a restriction i would like to keep :-( 

But JBoss requires a .war. How can i get rid of this issue (In Windows)?

In Unix machine i was able to create a link.
In Windows i tried something similar using cygwin but it gave FileNotFound exception on the link (file:/c:\user-21682\home\application\src\docroot.war)

I had linked docroot.war to docroot folder, but under Windows it is Not able to find the file(folder).

Under Unix this trick works.

Please Help!
