TCMAN Reference : Manager actions : Reload a Web application (reload)

Reload a Web application (reload)


Restart a deployed, running Web application so that the application can pick up changes to its classes or libraries.
To use this action, the Tomcat manager (manager.war) must be deployed on the instance and the instance must be running. You can deploy manager.war from $CATALINA_HOME/extras.
Note: The reload action does not reload the web application's web.xml file. To begin using changes to web.xml, you must stop and restart the web application.

Syntax reload [general_options] -u user_id:password app_name


Specify one or more of the options that can be used with any TCMAN action. Run help reload to see which general options are appropriate.
-u user_id:password
Specify a valid user name and password for HTTP Basic access authentication. (The default is -u tomcat:tomcat.)
Note: This option is required if the server in online. It is not required if the server is offline.
Specify the name of the web application to restart.
