All, I need to extend my already deployed application functionality by adding new code. The plan is to have a shared library which can be augmented with new code which extends the application functionality.
Is there any way I can update the shared library without having to redeploy the application.
I have read about production redeploy for applications does the same hold good for shared libraries too. Or is there any other way to do this with minimal disruption to the existing running application.

Thanks,
Sunil.

Welcome to the JavaRanch.
The answer to your question is "no". There is no way to update an application running on a server in production mode without redeploying it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
