Hi everyone,

I am running a jsp page (with some jar files) on a Tomcat webserver. On the page I am updating a XML file on the server based on the users input. The XML file is successfully updated (as I can see the new lines when opening the file) but I can not access the inserted data through my jsp page afterwards. Only after restarting the server manually it detects the changes in the xml file and I can display the xml-data online.

I read somewhere that a parameter called reloadable can be set in the context.xml file in the META-INF folder of the webapp, but it seems that it only detects changes in java class files and not in manipulated XML files.

Is there a way to let the server know about the changes in the XML file and recompile the jsp files automatically?
