I am doing the examples in the book Pro JSP (very good book by the way) and was wondering if it is necessary to restart the application everytime you create a new application or edit the /WEB_INF/web.xml file? Does the web.xml class get read everytime a servlet is run or is that file just read once when Tomcat is started?

The web.xml is only read when the application is first started. The Tomcat management interface will let you stop and start an application so you don't have to completely stop Tomcat.
