Hi,

This might be a silly question. But there are many times after I have made the changes to the servlet, rebuild the project. The web application is still using the old file.

Anybody can help me to explian what needs to be done and thanks!

Serena,
Some changes require you to restart the ear or server. Changing a deployment descriptor is one of these. Changing a servlet might be as well. You can force a restart by right clicking the server in the servers perspective.

Hi
Its possible that you enabled WAS caching facility ,
otherwise , when you rebuild the project which already is deployed on your default test server , changes will affect and you should see new
servelet in use .

which version of WSAD u use?

I wish it helps

Restarting the server should help. My observation tells me that if you change anything in JSPs or Servlet or XML config files (i.e.Web Layer) the server should be restarted and for anychanges in bean (Application Layer) project should be restarted and the changes would take place...you may want to try it..won't do any harm if not good...

I don't think you have to restart the server when a JSP or HTML is changed. Any .java or configuration files that are changed require a restart.
