Subject Re: Hot deployment Using Tomcat
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2008 21:50:23 GMT
autoDeploy is set to true by default in tomcat 6, make sure that this
attribute is set to "true" in the conf/server.xml.  If it is set to true,
then no matter if you're re-deploying a packed or un-packed war, it will
re-deploy should the timestamps on the web deployment descriptor change.
