Hi,

Is it possible reread tomcat-users.xml without restarting tomcat?

While using "Tomcat Administrative Tool" I found that I can update the roles of a non-admin user to include admin and could loging successfully.
While the same thing doesn't work in my web apps.

I would like to know how this can be achieved.

Thanks

Did you see the answer in your first post?
If so, and you have follow up questions, it would be better to post to that thread than to start another.
