Apache JServ (the servlet engine part) can reload classes that are listed in one
of the "repositories" entries for the zone you are developing in (corresponds to a
particular servlet context), but cannot load classes that were originally loaded
from the system class path.

Tomcat does not currently have auto-reload capabilities for any classes.
(JSP pages act like they are getting reloaded, but what really happens is that a
new class gets created for each new version of the page.).
