Hi folks,

In tomcat, whenever class file added, the tomcat will reload it,if you set reloadable=true attribute in <context> right?

is there any option like this in websphere?

The lack of a response might indicate that there's no such option. Just kicking the can myself, I can't think of one that would tell WebSphere Application Servers to remove a running Java class file from memory, and replace it with a new one, without bouncing the application itself first.

In IRAD7.x, we just republish, but that usually causes the WebSphere test server environment to stop and start.

I'm happy to be proven wrong on this point though.
