I am working on an application where the code is compiled using ant scripts which are getting called from a .bat file and the code files are compiled to a jar which is deployed on the tomcat server. Every time there is a change in my code i need to shut down my server and recompile the code using ant scripts and then the code is compiled to a jar which gets copied into the libraries of the tomcat server.
I want to ease out the process by configuring Hot Deployment in Eclipse such that every time there is a code change the code compilation and deployment on to Tomcat server happens automatically rather than my mechanically calling the build scripts from a bat file .
Can someone guide me as to how i can attempt Hot Deployment in Eclipse where the code compilation will automatically deploy the new jar file on Tomcat server.
Any help appreciated.
