There must be a way - Managing users is one of the things that the admin
webapp does.  Maybe take a look at its source code?  BTW, The admin
webapp doesn't come with the default installation of tomcat any more,
you have to download and install it separately.

Subject: Updating users

I have one servlet that registers a new user.  The result of this is an
update of conf/tomcat-users.xml

I have an almost out-of-the-box WebdavServlet that requires user

The users appear to be cached by Tomcat, and the "new" user can't access
the webdav area until Tomcat is restarted.

Is there a way to refresh/flush the Tomcat cache?  After much searching,
this appears to be a Tomcat limitation, but I find it hard to believe
that this isn't a commonly desired scenario.

Thanks in advance for any assistance,
