I have a problem with the tomcat3.2.1 servlet engine which
has been commimg often.The tomcat is not giveing me the
response from the latest/updated jsp files unless it is
restarted.What I understood is that the jsp engine
has got the intellegence to detect the latest among the
.java file and it compiled version.If the .java file is
latest formed the compilation occurs and the response
comes from the latest compiled version otherwise from the
already existing(explained in professional jsp wrox).
But sometimes even after making the changes in jsp file
the response comes from the older version.After number
of refreshes the required result comes,during this time
various jsp files with incresing number appers in repository(work folder).
Conceptually once the servlet is loaded in the servlet
engine it is unloaded once the engine is shut down only.
comment on this for the tomcat.
