I wonder if anyone has the same problem ...
Im using Springs MVC with tomcat and I have more than a hundred controllers, url-mappings and other various things defined in my xml files.
During development time whenever I make the slightest change to any of these config files I have to redeploy the application in tomcat and during each redeployment spring refresh's its beans loading all of the beans and definitions again . This process usually takes more than 30 seconds each time which is way too long .
Anybody has a good suggestion how to overcome this problem ? Should i report it as a feature request to have a development mode for loading data from context files ?
