Every time I compile my java code is it necessary to stop and then re-start Tomcat?

No, you can use the Tomcat manager to stop and restart single applications running within Tomcat.

One thing I do on my setup since I don't have a large number of users (in fact I only have 1 user that actually develops any servlet code) is include reloadable=true in the context xml file.

The manager works.. But when the app is using a library of some sort like "h2.jar" Stopping the application from the manager wont completely undeploy it.. When trying to delete the lib folder it gets the error file in use by another process.. So i have to stop tomcat, delete the lib folder, and restart tomcat and deploy my app again.. Got any alternative for that?
