      Description

      This is more to facilitate rapid software development. The ability to point to a local folder for deployment of a web application's static content allows developers to develop and update static content without redeployment or even rebuilding or executing any build task.

      This is particularly more pertinent now that Chrome allows mapping of loaded web resources onto local static files and any update to the static files (i.e. css, html, javascript, etc.) in Chrome will synchronize with the mapped resource in both directions. Essentially, web front-end developers can develop with a WYSIWYG experience in Chrome to rapidly tune and enhance the presentation layer.

      Essentially this feature is provide similar support which Tomcat and Jetty provides in terms of providing a static location for a web application
