The "auto-publishing" refers to the WTP behavior of automatically
publishing changes to your project to the Tomcat server. If the server
is running, the impact on the server will vary depending on what is
The "auto-reload" refers to the Tomcat feature of being able to detect
changed resources in the served webapp and reloading the webapp so those
changes can become "visible". For example, a change to a servlet class
or the web.xml will trigger such a reload so the changes take effect.
Note that such a change will typically cause the Servers view to show
that the Tomcat server needs to "Restart". If the "reload" works, you
may be able to ignore the "Restart". Unfortunately, explaining what
works and doesn't work with respect to "reloading" isn't practical to
describe. If the "Restart" takes too long, you just have to experiment
with your use cases to determine what kinds of changes allow you to skip it.
