Tomcat abnormally restarts when a JSP or Javascript file is modified.

I am currently using Eclipse Galileo with Tomcat 6.0. I don't understand why since a few days ago, tomcat restarts after building the whole worskpace because of a small modification in a JSP/HTML or javascript file. Normally it should restarts when a Java file or Servlet is modified.

Any hint?

Thanks!

Posted in wrong forum: this forum is for questions about JavaRanch. Moving. I hope you don't mind, Paul.

Hint: a JSP gets compiled into the Java code for a Servlet.

That's right, but that was not the result before. I used to modifying a JSP and Tomcat wouldn't restart, as I said, even javascript files cause a whole workspace building and tomcat restarts again and again and again...

I tried to disable the auto build, and then I disabled tomcat auto-reload until I resolve the problem.
