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.

If so, and you have follow up questions, it would be better to post to that thread than to start another.
