Watch and Deploy (WAD) Utility Released

Watch and Deploy WAD watches the src/main/java directory, uses the pom.xm to build your ThinWAR and copies the ./target/[name].war into the specified folder.

Usage: [THIN_WAR]/java -jar wad.jar /openliberty/wlp/usr/servers/defaultServer/dropins/

Download wad.jar.

nice, but it should run mvn clean package instead of mvn package.
In case a file is deleted from src/main/java folder the .class file is still in the target folder and gets deployed with the war.
