[GWT] Redeploying server side without having to restart tomcat

When you make changes in a gwt app, it's extremely time consuming to restart and test your change in particular because it recompiles to javascript and restarts the hosted mode browser. With normal webapps, you can just redeploy which is quite fast. Would there be a way to redeploy the server side piece of a GWT app (in hosted mode) without having to restart the entire thing?

Hello Travis,

You can use "Debug" action to run GWT configuration and hotswap changed server
classes. But hotswap doesn't work in case of scheme change (i.e. when methods
or fields are added or removed).
