Do you have to restart server to start a web app ?

we deploy web application to WAS server.  If we need to restart the web application deployed on the server, do we have to restart the server ? If so, then all the applications deployed on that server will be restarted, right ?  Is it possible to just start one application without restarting the entire WAS server ?

Welcome to the ranch !
No, you don't need to restart WAS to restart a web application. Via admin console, as well as via scripting, you can start and stop any application independently from other applications deployed in the same application server.

Hello,

Just 2 cents:

There could be rare cases when changes in web application settings will require restart server too (e.g.: JNDI names, etc..), but in general , yes - application can be started / stopped independently from server.
