Making changes in Java files without restarting server

Hello ,
I have deployed a struts application on Weblogic 6.1
After starting up the server I was wondering if I could make changes Source Java files - compile - and place the class files in WebLogic
Would the changes be reflected ?
Can this be possible without restarting the server ?
I was wondering since changes made in JSP get reflected so should the class file changes too be reflected on the fly ?
Thanks and hoping for some pointers ,

You would need to restart the server if you make any changes to Java classes for the changes to be reflected.
In case of JSP, the page is compiled at run-time (the first time when it is requested or when it is subsequently changed) by the JSP engine and picked up by weblogic, hence no restart of server is required.
The same is not possible for java classes.

There is another chance there for with out restating server ....
When u made change any java file then u can open the console and u can go to the servlet directory in that u can click the option "Redeployall" .
