I am using Fedora 19 and using Apache Tomcat for running servlet programs.

I had some problems which I traced to the fact that once I made any changes to my program and recompiled, I had to restart the Tomcat server in order to affect the changes, i.e, I had to reload the server.

In Windows, the server is reloaded automatically if any changes are made, via a separate command prompt that opens "startup.bat".

In Linux, when I start "" it just executes once and thereafter as I mentioned I have to restart the server manually.

Can anyone suggest what I should do for the Tomcat server to reload automatically on Linux after the changes are made?

I don't know much about it. But there is a link saying the reloadable attribute is default set to true.

True. I got the solution. You need to add attribute reloadable=true in the context.xml file found in conf folder. You need to specify this attribute in the <Context> tag. – Still A Learner Feb 16 '14 at 1:52
