opening jsp... inconsistancy

Yesterday, a simple jsp I made but it was not responding (was not displaying its content).

Today, after logging in my laptop, the same url (used dropdown box) without retyping it, it worked.

Question: Is the something related to Tomcat that has to be refreshed or something?

Something was holding this jsp from running yesterday but today it runs fine.

How do I do this?


re> 2.if you re build then you must restart the server

Is this like:
..\bin\shutdown.bat
..\bin\starup.bat

I have Tomcat 5.0

At this pont none. I have netbeans in my home computer.

I may get eclipse or netbeans installed. But it is nice to know how to handle this withou use of an IDE.

re:> normally how you start your server ??
It gets started when I log in I guess.
-------

I have the following: (can make my own .bat file to execute what is necessary)
startup-using-launcher.bat
startup.bat
shutdown-using-launcher.bat
shutdown.bat
setclasspath.bat
service.bat
digest.bat
cpappend.bat
catalina.bat
catalina.50.bat

If execution delay is a fator, I can execute selected ones in the order necessary.

I wonder if you could add a short sentence as to what each of these bat files do?

Thank you

executing: shutdown-using-launcher.bat
and then: startup-using-launcher.bat

seems to do the job. I guess I also need the current browser and opne a new one.
