My answer assumed you were referring to Tomcat plug-in behavior in general, which I can see now was a bit off target.  There are a number of issues that make "reconnecting" difficult for the WTP Tomcat plug-ins.  What is possible for glassfish depends on what it supports.  If you can post some details to the thread above (or in a new thread) about how the glassfish plug-ins interact with the server, I and others can try to respond, more appropriately this time.

Also, I think that the main complaint that is spawning this discussion is contained in this thread:
Feel free to respond in that thread as well.
