Speeding up application restarts?

Question asked by on Apr 3, 2007

I'm currently running the standard Alfresco community release on a pretty fast PC (AMD opteron) under CentOS.  I'm using the supplied Tomcat container to host the release.

I'm starting to write extensions that include Java code.  I seem to have to restart Alfresco all the time to get my code changes to go live.  This is driving me a bit nuts because it takes something like a minute to stop and then bring back up the Alfresco web app in Tomcat.

Is there a better way?  Is there some trick I haven't learned yet with Tomcat?  If I switch to JBoss or some other container, will this be any better?   Should I look at paring down what parts of Alfresco get loaded?  Should I put everything on a RAM disk?  Or do I just need a faster PC?

Any help at speeding up my build/install/RESTART/debug cycle will be greatly appreciated.
