Subject Re: TC 4.0.1: classes being cached - requires restart to update
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2001 20:29:40 GMT
Where is the class file itself?  It must be under /WEB-INF/classes or in a
JAR file in /WEB-INF/lib for reloading to work.

Are you waiting long enough after recompiling (default check interval is
15 seconds) for Tomcat to get around to checking?  If this interval is too
long for your taste, you can either set a shorter timeout on the <Manager>
element in server.xml, or use the Manager web app to force a reload any
time you like.  (The class still has to be in the right place -- see
above.)
