Actually, even if you don't enable the "restart the appserver if anything changes" mode, Webware _does_ dynamically reload any servlets (or PSP pages) if the underlying file changes on disk. It just doesn't automatically reload any of the other modules that your servlets depend on if _they_ change.
So if you just need to tweak a servlet or PSP, you do not need to restart the appserver -- the changes do get picked up automatically.
