Subject Programmatically reload webapp in Tomcat 6
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 22:10:05 GMT
Manually, the Tomcat Manager web app allows me to easily restart a web 
app.  So, assuming I have the tomcat manager username and password, I 
can make a program invoke the same URL that probably would cause the web 
app to reload, using something like:

Is there a programmatic way to do this directly instead to make it 
easier to detect any errors or the like?  I basically would like a web 
app to be able to reload itself, without stopping Tomcat itself, such as 
after an automated download that installed some new versions of JARs and 
JSPs for the web app (allowing the web app to download upgrades, install 
them, then restart the web app so it's put into use).
