grails plugins deployment
Is there any way to deploy grails plugins to production environment without doing builds of grails applications that are using this plugin?
Lets say we have a few Grails web applications, common behavior/elements (ui widgets, services, etc) are distributed as grails plugins and installed in the web apps.
Now lets say we have discovered a bug in one of the plugins and have to release hotfix to production environment. Do we have to rebuild all of the web apps or is there a way to reinstall only affected plugin without the hassle of rebuilding and releasing all of the affected web apps.
What is the best practice for dealing with this.
Thanks in advance,

At the moment, plugins are packaged in the WAR files so I'm afraid you'll have to update all the apps. We are looking at adding runtime modularity for Grails 2.0, which should improve the situation dramatically.
