I'm using Tomcat 4.0 and when I update my class files I have to restart the server before they are active. My JSPs are fine as they are recomplied whenever they are changed. Is there a way to force tomcat to reload classes without having to restart the server? Thanks
Just checked it myself... you might have to read the 'original' thread to get the flow of the topic, but trust me, it addresses your question. The 'original' thread is linked in my first post in the thread. [ February 22, 2002: Message edited by: Mike Curwen ]
have anybody ever wrote his own WebappLoader "implemented the org.apache.catalina.Loader" before?
what I am trying here to do is to implement my own Loader so that it does not reload all the webapplication again in case of modifying any class file in WEB-INF/classes, because what is the purpose of the className attribute in the Loader tag as descriped on the apache site
