Every Context has an attribute "reloadable" that can be true or
false. Set it to true and your servlets will be automatically
reloaded. Note: *only* the servlet class itself will be reloaded, not
any classes it depends on. Check the FAQ for an explanation of
possible work-arounds if that should be your problem.
