I think you should have a look at what is suggested by Forrest in the link "http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=238602&tstart=45".
See the comment #2 by Jack on this.
Hi Russell! What republish feature are you talking about? If you double
click on the Apache 2.2 in the Server view in eclipse, I have the Publishing
settings set to "Automatically publish when resource change". Is this the
re-publish feature you are talking about? If so, if I change a class it
seems to be publishing the whole app.
