I am working on j2ee web application based on Tomcat 5.0.8. Sometimes I modify java classes, then redeploy to tomcat and restart Tomcat, those modification will be in effect. But the problem, the project is too huge to restart and waste lots of time.
I want to get a shortcut.
So I try to manually overwrite the class file in the Tomcat webapps, then reload page. but this way doesn't work. I search whole directory, I can't find another same name java class file there.
