The best place to ask programming/development questions, imo. UPDATE: stackoverflow is the *worst* place to *ask* questions (if your first question/comment doesn't get any up-rating/response, then u can't ask anymore questions--ridiculously unrealistic), but a great reference for finding answers.

jrebel - xhtml files not getting reloaded after change/edit

yesterday i was changing some xhtml files while running my app in debug mode in eclipse, but the changes weren't showing up in the browser and i wasn't seeing any reloading msgs in the console, although my jrebel.log file was showing that changes had been registered:
2013-08-22 13:30:49.979 INFO  [IntelliJFSNotify] Event 'CHANGE' on: '/home/me/workspaceEclipse/myapp/WebContent/webcomponents/fragments/listTransportRequests.xhtml'

i found this post today JRebel, JSF and automatic reload of xhtml files so i opened my web.xml file to see if these elements were there:
<context-param>
    <param-name>facelets.REFRESH_PERIOD</param-name>
    <param-value>0</param-value>
</context-param>
<context-param>
    <param-name>facelets.DEVELOPMENT</param-name>
    <param-value>true</param-value>
</context-param>


and they were, except the values were different:
<context-param>
    <param-name>facelets.REFRESH_PERIOD</param-name>
    <param-value>2</param-value>
</context-param>
<context-param>
    <param-name>facelets.DEVELOPMENT</param-name>
    <param-value>false</param-value>
</context-param>


when i changed them to 0 and true, then saved the web.xml file, i suddenly saw some output on the console that one of my xhtml files had been changed. then i changed the values back to their original values and jrebel was still reloading them. i stopped the server, rebuilt my project, redeployed in debug and it was still working.... so i'm a little confused...

at least it's working now though :)
