[jboss-user] [Installation, Configuration & DEPLOYMENT] - JBoss vs Weblogic: classloading

I'm working on an app that is app server agnostic (in theory). Here's the exploded deployment structure:

   + first.war
   + second.war
   + third.war
   + APP-INF
      ++ lib

As some of you may know, Weblogic will load binaries from the classes folder (under APP-INF) before loading binaries from the lib folder. This is great - I can output binaries from eclipse to the classes folder hot swap them. However this doesn't work in JBoss - I've tried it many times and in many different configurations. JBoss DOES pick up binaries from the lib folder - binaries that the war's depend on. My question is - is it possible to configure JBoss to load non jar packaged binaries before it goes looking in the lib folder? Basically I'd like to hot swap class files - my current process with JBoss is to kill the server, update the jars (under the lib folder) and restart which is very time consuming.

Many thanks.
