As I said in my previous post, the notion that this is the root of the 
problem is not correct.  I've tried at least 2 other products with the 
EXACT same CLASSPATH (Resin and Jrun) and they work fine with Apache.  I 
couldn't get *ANY* to work with IIS v5.0, but that's another issue 8).

As I stated before, I am new to Tomcat and trying out various products to 
use within our company, and my developers are (as another poster said it) 
PO'd that I have to take Tomcat down every time they compile a new .java 
file.  Since the issue isn't unique to me and the solution not readily 
available, I can't really say I've had adequate exposure to fully 
evaluate Tomcat.

I appreciate your time and efforts in posting a response.  I didn't wish 
to imply anything, but when I am looking for alternatives to M$, I don't 
really have the time to look at server source code to figure out why 
something doesn't work as stated.  

Our company deals with medium to small companies looking to implement low 
cost intranet solutions.  When I'm evaluating several products, I cannot 
afford to spend hours trying to get something to work, let alone 
recommending it to a client when I cannot even get it to work myself.  If 
it says to "X, Y, and Z" in the instructions and I do that in the correct 
order, it should work with little headache.
