Subject Partial context reload
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2008 06:13:54 GMT
Hi all,

I have a question regarding context reloading in tomcat. Our app
consists of two type of Java class files (1) core modules consisting
of many singletons which are initialized once by reading large files
from filesystem at the start of application (2) helper classes mostly
for formatting, e.g., a servlet that serves a PNG graph, formatting of
time in different formats, and classic JSP tags extending TagSupport.

Tomcat allows users to set "reloadable=true", but that reloads the
whole context (even if a single class has changed). This means, our
application has to initialize itself all over again which is time
consuming (it reads lot of stuff from files in memory). Is there a way
to set partial reload?? Which means, if one of the helper classes has
changed (and core classes are intact), just replace that changed code
in the context.

Any help on this issue will be of great use to us.
