There are pros and cons to both approaches… Im not saying there is no value in your approach, but with the current strategy you can patch a UI without having to do another build. Therefore only a very small change will be made to the system which reduces risk in my opinion. You don’t have to worry about doing a build and overwriting a prior patch or doing something else unintended. I don’t think one is best, if the current way fits in your deployment model, I think you will have less risk. If not, then you have to do it the other way ☺ This isn’t a trivial change, will need to look into it.

I can see both ways being useful, maybe at different scales or deployment models. Here at OSU we have 2 frontend servers. I prefer to patch the base directory and then build the WAR. That way I can deploy an identify WAR on both servers. I'd like the patches and the upgrades to work the same way.
