Hi,

Is it possible to hot deploy WARs in tomcat (not having to restart tomcat every time a WAR is updated) ?
If yes then what is the procedure to hot deploy...

Thanks,

Chetan

Moving the new war file into the webapps directory will deploy or re-deploy the app without needing to restart.

You might also want to look into the manager and HTMLManager apps that ship with Tomcat. The manager app also comes with libraries that allow you to handle deployment issues from ANT build scripts.
