Hi gurus,

Is there a way to config Tomcat 4 to auto. reload class files in its /shared/classes directory? I want to drop a class in there without restarting tomcat, it's for my development enviroment. (I know about setting DefaultContext reloadable=ture in server.xml but that's not it.)

Thanks in advance.
