I have created some servlets
and uploaded on a server and these are working properly...
but after some days i have made some changes
and uploaded new one...
but changes are not reflecting....
as instance of the servlet is running...
How can I force to start a new instance of the servlet..
as i cannot ask service provider to stop and re-start the server as other different sites are also running on the same server....
i m in problem ...please give me the solution..
Thanx an advance
tommorrow is two days past the yesterday's deadline

I guess you have no way to do it without sa's help. It would be a different story if it is a jsp.

What servlet runner are you using?

If it's Tomcat 4.x, there is a manager application that can be used to restart individual web applications without starting and stopping the whole server.

If it's iPlanet Web Server, there is a similar facility to stop and start a single application.
I agree. Here's the link:
