When i do changes to my servlet and do compilation,replace the files,the tomcat is not taking the changes.When i restart the tomcat, then the changes were working fine.
Pl tell me what was the problem or show me the correct way to do it.
The value of an idea lies in the usage of it.

Personally I use the Tomcat Management Application - it lets you unload and reload a specific web application. According to the specs, reloadable="true" should work by monitoring the timestamps on the .class and .jar files - I dunno why it doesn't in some installations. Bill
There are some known problems in Tomcat 4 (specifically with 4.1.27 if I recall) with reloading. Tomcat 5 seems to have solved these issues (and I believe there is a patch for 4.1.27 but I can't vouch for it).
