Subject Re: Restart tomcat when recompiling servlet
Date Tue, 15 Aug 2000 19:09:02 GMT
Hmmm...  Tomcat does not include any of my WEB-INF/classes directories in
the classpath automatically.  Are you sure we're talking about the same
"classpath" here?  I'm referring to the CLASSPATH environment variable, not
the directories specified in server.xml in which Tomcat looks for servlets.

Somewhere in the documentation it explains that if a class is located in the
classpath, the default Java class loader is used, which doesn't support
automatic class reloading.  Thus, it wouldn't make much sense for Tomcat to
automatically add all those directories to the classpath, or automatic class
loading wouldn't work.
