  • Modify IIS website settings without restarting Tomcat

    Sep 14, 2017 01:34 PM|Ron van Pol|LINK

    We have setup HTTPPlatformHandler using Tomcat 8.5. It works like a charm, but I don't like the fact that ANY change to the IIS website immediately triggers a restart of tomcat. A simple thing as adding binding or modifying logging settings triggers a restart, which is unwanted. I would like to have more control over when Tomcat is restarted and be able to change settings of the IIS website without a Tomcat restart. Is that possible?

    Thanks,
    Ron

    There are certain settings in IIS that force an application recycle. Since you have the HTTPPlatformHandler loaded in that application, Tomcat will recycle as well. There isn't a way to isolate this behavior.
