configuration for quicker servlet-app feedback (no server restart)


when developing I want to have quick feedback without server restart. Currently I am working with following technology stack which forces me to restart server everytime I make a change to classes or jsp-files, which takes too long:
-spring mvc

Is there a way to configure IDEA tomcat plugin to do the reloading better without restart? Maybe this is also a tomcat issue and Jetty handles reloading better?

i am using jetty and the IDEA jetty plugin now and it seems to handle reloading stuff out of the box much better.

I don't need to restart server for both JSP and  class changes.
