I am using tomcat\shared\lib for storing jars of my application. When i put new jars the new changes are not getting loaded . It seems new jars are not getting redeployed. Application is showing old jars functionality.

Thanks, Bhupendra K.

When I'm redeploying, I tend to wipeout the contents of the webapps and work directories, in some attempt to clean up old jars.

It might help..

Only jars in /WEB-INF/lib are redeployed. You should not store application jars in /shared/lib .
