Currently, JBoss Tools adds the deployment folder to the scanner list. When using custom deploy folders, an option to disable the automatic deployment of the folder and have the user manually configure the JBoss AS instance to scan the custom directory would be great. This option would by default, not be enabled to preserve existing behavior.
The use case for this is my team uses the JBoss AS 4.2 Prefix deployment scanner to deploy items in a predetermined order. When using the custom deploy directory, the Prefix deployment scanner doesn't seem to be used. I'm more than happy to setup the scanner myself, but then the AS tries deploying the items twice. Once for my scanner, and then another for the actions of JBoss Tools.
