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.

    [BZ 1076389] Jar-less plugin now deployed in one go, no need to wait
    for the next scan.
