And don't forget to tell the server that the on-disk configuration has changed. The generic "brute force" way is to restart the server, but most modern servers also support some form of "ping" to tell them to reload their configurations.
What all are the setps which i have to perform if i am deployin a servlet without deploytool. I am using J2ee1.4 server
if you are using tomcat (not sure about the other servers/containers) you can create a .war file and then put it into the deployment directory.the server would automatically deploy that for you when you restart the server..
