Description Lukas Krejci 2014-03-14 09:58:02 UTC
Description of problem:
This is not usually a problem in dev environment where we have 30s scan intervals but could be a problem in the production where it is 5 minutes (which I think is beyond the threshold of people assuming something is still happening).

Also usability-wise this is quite a strange behavior.

This also is a problem for BZ 1022943 which adds new remote API and REST endpoint for working with plugins. Having 2 different workflows for descriptor-only and "full" plugins would be very hard to explain to users.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a dummy (but valid) plugin descriptor
2. deploy it to the server

Actual results:
Notice the log message saying that it will be deployed on the next scan.

Expected results:
Deployment of descriptor-only plugin works the same as for full plugin jars.

Bulk closing of RHQ 4.11 issues, now that RHQ 4.12 is out.

If you find an issue with those, please open a new BZ, linking to the old one.
