Did you noticed Spring Loaded is here?

Well... I didn't! Not for almost a whole month! And it's the best damn thing ever!

Here's how you use it:
MAVEN_OPTS="-javaagent:/path/to/springloaded.jar -noverify" mvn tomcat:run
Next you open Eclipse, do changes, reload pages - all changes occur immediately! Sure you can't add new Spring artifacts (which is odd), change class hierarchy (no surprise there) but you can add/remove methods which is more that what you had before.

Well - it isn't JRebel - but it is good enough!

Have fun!

Hi,
How can I run an application with spring-loaded from an IDE (Eclipse, IDEA). I tried adding javaagent to tomcat but it doesn't work.

Thanks
