  • Confused about STS, Maven, and java hotswapping

    I am getting conflicting information about maven, STS, and code hot swapping, and was hoping someone could clear it up.

    I'm using STS, maven, and spring for the first time at a new job, though I a fair amount of experience with eclipse. When we got my machine set up we noticed that in order for any java changes to take effect I had to: a) rebuild using maven, b) refresh the project, c) clean my server (tomcat 7), d) restart my server. I had never had this problem using eclipse. Changes were brought in automatically. This is an issue for at least one other person at my place of work.

    In researching the issue online some sources seem to indicate you need a plugin to hot swap when using maven, but out of 12 developers only 2 of us are having the problem, so that doesn't seem right.

    Does anyone have a better understanding of what is going on?

    Forgot to mention, I have verified this on a brand new STS generated Spring project consisting of 1 jsp and 1 controller
