Nothing.  Since the jar is in tomcat/lib, it's handled by the common class loader, so you
have to restart Tomcat to get the updated jar recognized.  If the jar were in the webapp's
WEB-INF/lib directory, you could restart just that one webapp.

Thanks, Chuck.

And is there a setting to have Tomcat automatically restarted when jar changes under tomcat/lib?
