Unloading servlet when changed

Hi Friends,
How to unload the servlet explicitly?There is no way to call destroy method from a servlet code.
Whenever i change the servlet code ,i have to close and start the server again to check the output instantly.
Thanks to all for helping me out to solve the previous problems !

There shouldn't be a need to restart the server - most servlet containers (like Tomcat) have an option to reload individual web apps through a management console. Should be quite a bit faster than restarting the server.
