I need to load a class which outside on tomcat environment (tomcat is already running).I have a class into different location which I have to load when my application is already running into tomcat. Can someone help me it's possible to load a class into already started tomcat and how?
You may find the "class-loader-howto.html" file that comes in a standard Tomcat installation under tomcat-docs to be helpful here. Note that Tomcat pays no attention to the environment classpath. The initialization params for your servlet can be used to point to the location of your class files so you should not have to modify server.xml but you will have to set security properties. Bill
