Yes, you will need to restart if you modify action.xml.

Struts 1.0 will include a number of "standard" actions that you can configure
if you choose to -- among them an action to add a new mapping on the fly.
Obviously, you will want to protect such actions with some sort of security
protections (or disable them when you deploy for production).

One advantage of coexistence is that references to EJBs are now in the same VM
as your web components, which should generally be much faster than when the EJB
server is accessed through the network.
