Replacing a Web Application without restarting the container
Joined: Mar 13, 2006
According to the spec,
"A server should be able to replace an application with a new version without restarting the container. When an application is replaced, the container should provide a robust method for preserving session data within that application."

As far as I know this is optional functionality. Tomcat can't do a "hot deploy", although other containers can.
The "manager" web app can start/stop/restart/remove individual applications in Tomcat. It's installed under http://localhost:8080/manager/ , but I think (can't quite remember) that it's not enabled by default. Check whether there's a file TOMCAT_HOME/Catalina/localhost/manager.xml
Its documentation is here. [ September 13, 2006: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
