hi
I have following entry in server.xml in Tomcat.
Eventhough i set reloadable="true" I have to restart the Tomcat when i change my class file
<Context path="/onjava" docBase="onjava" debug="0" reloadable="true" />
Is this attribute applicable to .jsp pages or for both classes and .jsp pages

Thanx in advance
Ajit Kanada

Is the file you are changing a servlet file or a non-servlet helper class?

Ajit,
I use Tomcat 4.0.x on two different boxes. One is a Linux box, and the other is a Win2000 box.
On the Linux box, reloadable works as you would expect. On the Win2000 box however, I must reboot just as you describe. My experience is with servlets, rather than with JSP, but since JSPs are translated into servlets anyone, I would expect the same behavior.
I can't say this is a definitive answer, but I have just learned to live with the problem in the Win2000 environment.
Regards,
Jim

"reboot"? I'm sure you meant restart the server.
And while I cannot speak for servlet reloading under Windoze, I do know that JSPs will automatically reload on all platforms.
hth,
bear

Jim Bo !
I have a similar story like you, as i have two OS win and linx i found that reloadable=true is working on linux while not on windows ...
this is probably a bug of tomcat .
I use to delete all servlets in the work folder to get new version of JSp as most often i get old jsp at tomcat. besides this i would also like to mention that tomcat has some problem wiht jar files and classpath issues as i faced no of problems wiht jar file from third party.
