Subject Auto update servlet (not loaded by the system classloader)
Date Sun, 10 Jun 2001 15:20:38 GMT
Hi,

I have read the solutions given below and understood it very well.But my 
problem is that I cannot dynamically reload servlets. I need to restart for 
every reload of servlet.

Although the servlet in question is not in the Default class loader's 
classpath.

So the servlet is only getting loaded by the Tomcat Servers class loader.

My CLASSPATH is pointing only to my servlet.jar.

Any help on this would be much appreciated

Aejaz
