Previously users could use app servers to help deploy their wars to their clustered environments. This is not possible with jars. We need a way to help deploy our osgi-fied jars into clustered environments.
The deployment-helper-web is a war that can auto deploy when it is deployed.
The idea is to create an ant task that can package the jars we wish to deploy with deployment-helper-web and end up with a traditional war that they can now use with their app servers to deploy into clustered environments.
