When I make some change in our servlet it gets reloaded.
Can I restart the application server?

Why not?

If you are using Tomcat - you can use the Management Application to restart an entire web application. Bill

in most cases, don't restart the application server. instead, you can start the related application context as bill said.

If you don't want to restart that application context, you may jump to the work directory and delete the correspondent servlet code. Next time if the servlet is accessed, the servlet will be recompiled and re-instantiated.

I agree. Here's the link:
