Hi

I am quite new to WSAD and J2ee. I understand that i need to restart the server (test environment) for reflecting any changes on my servlet and EJB modules. Can someone help me on how to do a hot redeploy in WSAD.

thanks and regards

In the server configuration, there will be an option "Enable hot method replace in debug mode" (It will be in the "Server" tab. Where you specify your server name). You need to check that option and run your server in debug mode.

hi

Thanks Satish for ur input. It would be helpful if someone could provide me pointers on where i can get resources which explain "running in debug mode" and "hot method replace" in more detail.

Thanks and regards

Hi,

WSAD comes installed with a help feature. Access it from Help->Help Contents from your WSAD instance and do a search for "Starting a server in debug mode". It will explain how to start a server in debug mode and how to enable Hot Deployment.

If you want to learn more about WSAD, the IBM RedBooks are a very good source. They are available online and are free to download.

This might be of help:
