Fixed hotswap under Tomcat on Mac
yosef kitrossky, this independent plugin is long obsolete and bundled with IntelliJ IDEA. It enables hot swap for method bodies, just like in Java. Without a javaagent, even that wouldn't work, because groovy compiler generates a uniquely-named field on each compilation, which would prevent any class from being hot-swapped. Some documentation, but not much, is available at
Is there any documentations about this?, what hotswap operations it enables, why do this require an javaagent? etc
