9iAS JSP

I run JSP application on my Oracle iAS. Whenever I change (recompile java files) my code in the class files (under the /.../application-name/WEB-INF/ directory), I need to stop and start the iAS web server to take the changes be in effect. Is there any better way to make the changes in the class files effective without stopping the iAS server?

If you create a .war file for your application, you may be able to place new versions of your .war in the /applications directory.  The server can recognize that a new .war exists and will redeploy.  This will stop processing going on in the application, but will not require a server shutdown.

I have created the new .war file (that I need to reploy now) for my application named "fastt":
In my local machine:
$jar cfv fastt.war ./*

In the iAS server:
The present .war file is under the the directory:
$ORACLE_HOME/j2ee/home/applications/fastt/

Can I now replace the present fastt.war file in the above directory by the new fastt.war file?Will this replacement overwrite the files under the above directory right away (with the files under the new war file)?
After I do that, dont I need to use any dcmctl commands,etc.?  If so, please let me know the exact commands.
