According to the spec,

"A server should be able to replace an application with a new version without
restarting the container. When an application is replaced, the container should provide a robust method for preserving session data within that application."

How do we do this in tomcat.Is this possible in weblogic server

As far as I know this is optional functionality. Tomcat can't do a "hot deploy", although other containers can.

The "manager" web app can start/stop/restart/remove individual applications in Tomcat. It's installed under http://localhost:8080/manager/ , but I think (can't quite remember) that it's not enabled by default. Check whether there's a file TOMCAT_HOME/Catalina/localhost/manager.xml

Its documentation is here.
