Tomcat + Eclipse auto-publishing

Just a quick post on my break… I’ve had massive issues in the past with my Java tooling rebuilding / hotswapping / not-hotswapping-when-it-says-it-has and finally did some research to resolve the issues. Found a great article breaking down how & why these things happen, and how to avoid them.

I’ll be writing my own post on how to setup your environment for effective Java development, but in the meantime read the great article at http://blog.redfin.com/devblog/2009/09/how_to_set_up_hot_code_replacement_with_tomcat_and_eclipse.html to get your setup working well.
