Restart Tomcat With Single .bat File

Presently if I need to restart tomcat then first I have to run shutdown.bat and then startup.bat.

Is there anyway, by which I have to run only one .bat file to restart tomcat?


My blood is tested +ve for Java.

The only problem with combining the shutdown.bat and startup.bat into a single file would be dealing with the time delay - it takes Tomcat a while to clean up during shutdown so you would need some way to wait.

Personally I don't think it is worth the trouble. If you need this capability to handle changes during development, why not use the Management application to restart a particular web application.
I agree. Here's the link:
