I'm developing in IDEA 4.5.1 with Tomcat 5 using the Tomcat debug config.
Whenever I modify a class, and hit Make Project (CTRL-F9), IDEA asks if I want to Reploy the webapp. I hit "No". Then it asks if I want to HotSwap, and I hit "Yes". But, at this point I notice that Tomcat 5 is reloading my webapp anyway..
So, my session is gone, and I have to login again.
When I was debugging with IDEA 4 and Tomcat 4, (and using an Application Debug config, instead of the Tomcat Debug config), when I would hotswap, it would simply hotswap, and not reload the whole webapp.
Anything I can do to prevent this?
