I have developed a eclipse plugin to support incremental deployment for
Maven multi-module JEE Projects.
The problem to me was that the WTP integration did not support hot or
incremental deployment from multi-module maven projects.
In the past my ear pom.xml did include a ant-plugin configuration like this
to copy the final ear build into my glassfish autodeploy folder:

                               the Property 'autodeploy' needs to be configured in the
                               settings.xml file the property should point to the autodeploy
                               folder from app server
                       <echo message="About to copy EAR to autodeploydirectory..." />
                       <echo> EAR:
                               autodeploy directory: ${autodeploy} </echo>
                               todir="${autodeploy}" />
                       <echo message="Copied EAR to autodeploy directory." />

This all works but Glassfish also supports incremental deployment. So any
changes to a .xhtml, .jsf Page can be deployed incremental when the changes
from the Eclipse IDE are reflected into the glassfish applications/
directory where all deployed JEE modules and applications are present.

So this is what my pugin did. You can specifiy the target folder for a JEE
module and you got a incremental deployment.

As a result using this plugin I only need to make a mvn:install when a full
redeploy is suitable .

But maybe this is helpful to other maven developers.
Thanks for any feedback.
