I was just testing if changes to web.xml file requires a restart of the web application to reflect the changes...for that I just created a jsp page and tried to give it a display name as below
i could see that serverpage.jsp opens well with this URL http://localhost:8080/MyWebApp/displayname. Now if I change the displayname to some other name and save the web.xml file, the new name became the display name for that jsp without any need of restarting my web application. I heard that such changes to web.xml actually will need to require a web application restart for the changes to reflect. If that is the case I have no clue how this worked without restarting the web app.
Otherwise, in case that.. changes to only some specific elements of the web.xml file requires the application restart..can you please list them out.
hey thanks for the reply, can you please elaborate your answer and help me out in knowing about those configuration settings in tomcat..and is that applicable only to web.xml file or any other configuration file that I use and is specific to my web app?
