Subject RE: Must Restart Server??
Date Mon, 04 Nov 2002 18:38:34 GMT
Thanks Kevin. I think this is actually a Velocity thing... None of my 
other servlets require me to start the server, or even the webapp for that 
matter. It seems like there should be a cache setting somewhere in 
Velocity that enables me to make changes to a Servlet that extends 
VelocityServlet without needing to restart the container. Am I wrong?

I have not used WebSphere in a while, so I did a quick search and found a
WAS FAQ that may help. You should 
be able to reload your Web app, rather than restarting.

Quick Note:
I currently use Tomcat for development. It has a Manager servlet that 
you to reload web applications (without restarting Tomcat). I also use Ant
for make tasks. I have an Ant task that compiles my code, jars it up, 
it into Tomcat and then sends an HTTP request to the Tomcat Manager 
to reload the webapp I'm working on... I go from code to browser in about 
seconds (with one command).
