I am using tomcat for servlets. When ever I recompile my servlet it does not reflect in browser the changes I made in updated version.I had make changes in server.xml also relodable="true" but all in vain.
Any body know how to load the updated version of servlets.
At present I am restarting the server again and again
Thanks for help.

We're pleased to have you here with us on the Ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Since this is more about Tomcat than Ant, I'm moving this along to the Tomcat forum.

Personally I use the Management Application - docs are included with your tomcat installation. For security reasons, you have to specifically create a user with the management role.
Also - watch out for caching by your browser, your servlet may be reloading but the browser shows a cached page.

are you copying the servlet classes to an expanded war directory?
Or are you copying the war file to an auto-deploy directory?
And which version are you using? 4 or 5?
