Modify JSP page without having to restart the application server.

Hello,

I'm wondering if there's a way I could configure Tomcat so that I could modify JSP page without having to restart the application server.

Thanks for the help.

It should do it by default...

There is the "reloadable" flag in the application context (META-INF/context.xml or conf/server.xml) but that should just make it reload when you change the compiled classes or libraries...

If you modify your jsp file you dont need to restart tomcat cause by default it will just compile a new one once you refresh the jsp page ;)

Thanks guys.

I'm quite sure that a few timew I see my old page showing up instead of new one when I develop my JSP. There could be something wrong with my code or I forgot to refresh the page.

It may be a browser caching issue...

Try holding CTRL when you click refresh in the browser
