web.xml query

hi all
Is it necessary to re-start Tomcat after making changes in web.xml.
The reason I am asking this is, the solution provider where I got to host my servlet/JSP doesnt give me permission to re-start the same. But when I make entrie to web.xml, for servlet, it works but servlet mapping doesnt work. As a result, I have to specify a path like :<servlet name>
whereas I want to achieve a path like :<servlet name>
Is there anyway I can do this..??

It is possible to configure Tomcat to automatically reload webapps if it thinks something has been changed. This is done by setting in the main Tomcat configuration file server.xml. So usually when you modify web.xml, changes will be updated.
As for the trouble with the mappings, perhaps your provider is using Apache + Tomcat and only forwards /servlet/* requests to Tomcat. It's best to contact them and ask.
