how to auto re-load the classes without shutting down the JVM?
posted 13 years ago
Hi All, Does anyone have any thoughts as to how to auto re-load the classes, which have been loaded into JVM using Custom Class loader? I tried writing custom class loader and loaded all the classes, but don't know how to re-load the same class, if it has been modified (re-compiled) without shutting down JVM, similar to JSP engine, where if we put updated JSP file, it picks up the new file. Note: I learnt that, we need to recreate new class loader and load all the classes again, but don't know exactly how to apply that technique in the system. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Babu
