Hot reloading not always working

More often than not, Play! doesn’t hot reload updated Java classes and restarting is required, slowing development down.

Is there any solution to this issue?

Using Play 1.5.3 and OpenJDK 1.8.0_222 on Ubuntu 18.04.3.

I have simillar problem.

@sant0s did you found some solution?

@landsman No, no luck. I’ve not been able to reproduce this issue, so it seems a bit random. Will report here in case I find any pattern.

Also, sometimes, while updating Java code, the following line

Restart: Path has changed

shows up repeatedly in logs and a restart is required.
