I need to restart eGuide from the command line (on Linux), without having to restart Tomcat. It would be something similar to what the Tomcat web application manager allows, but from a command-line interface rather than from a web UI.
1. Set the context of the application to “reloadable” using the Tomcat Server administration tool.
2. “Touch” the web.xml file under the WEB-INF directory of eGuide.
eGuide will now restart.
