Is there a way to configure Tomcat 5.0.x to allow hot deployment of individual files that change rather than redeploying the entire WAR?
For instance, when I run into a problem with a JSP, I'd like to fix that JSP and deploy only that changed file to wherever I need to so tomcat will recompile the JSP and use it the next time I request that page.
Same for a Java file. I'd like to signal to Tomcat's classloader that the class files it previously loaded need to be discarded and reloaded.
but why only jsp pages are reloaded each time when i change something in the jsp and save it . why not a class file(servlet) even after recompiling the same class file??? is there any other way like hot deployment in tomcat4.0 or tomcat 5.0 ?
