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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a dummy (but valid) plugin descriptor
2. deploy it to the server
Notice the log message saying that it will be deployed on the next scan.
Deployment of descriptor-only plugin works the same as for full plugin jars.
