Anyone know why tomcat(4.0.x) is the one thing that cannot be hot re-deployed in JBoss? I get a boatload of exceptions - LinkageError, Servlet instantiation, NullPointerExceptions, etc., whenever I redeploy.
We have several tomcat valves in development, and hot re-deploy of tomcat is a big thing for us. Besides, everything is supposed to hot re-deploy...why not this one component?
Note that this happens whether tomcat is deployed via the default .xml deployer, or deployed as a .sar. It also occurrs on all versions of 3.0x.
