Hi Gunjan,
if you have set the parameter reloadable=false in the context block in server.xml file, u need to restart tomcat to notice the changes made to the servlet. If u dont want to restart everytime, set the reloadable parameter to true.

Also you should investigate the Mangement functions which allow you to start stop etc. any application. Your Tomcat installation has the docs on line.
