Cached classes in tomcat 4

I'm using Tomcat 4.0 and when I update my class files I have to restart the server before they are active. My JSPs are fine as they are recomplied whenever they are changed.
Is there a way to force tomcat to reload classes without having to restart the server?
Thanks

There's an apache/tomcat forum on the JavaRanch where you'll find a more concentrated pool of expertise for that kind of question.
I think there's a way, but I haven't studied it - there are just too many pitfalls. Especially since the startup/shutdown cycle for Tomcat is fairly brief.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
