I have had a similar problem.  I don't know the cause, but stopping tomcat,
deleting the contents of the "work" folder and restarting forces a recompile
without rebooting.

Subject: Odd Page Caching Behavior

Sometimes after developing for a while, Tomcat will stop showing 
my changes and insist on showing an old version of one or more
of my pages.

I have IE (5.50) set to re-access the page on every visit and
deleting all the files and restarting IE doesn't fix the problem.
Re-starting Tomcat and VisualAge doesn't fix it.  Only 
re-boot works.

I had one page, index.jsp, which I replace with a completely
different content.  It kept showing the old one.  If I removed
index.jsp, I would get a "not found" as expected, but as 
soon as I put the new index.jsp in, I would get the old 
content again.

Weird.  Any ideas on what is caching the pages?  How to
stop it.
