    So, I have a custom plugin, but don't want to have to start and stop the server every single time I edit it, just to make sure it works. Is there any way I can make my edits be live on the server?

    @retsaoT You can make a reload command for your plugin.

    But my plugin is in Eclipse, and whenever I have to check whether it works, I have to export it from eclipse, and overwrite the plugin that's already there.

    Its just I've seen live editing on plugins, and don't know how to do it.

    And I have to start and stop the server whenever I do overwrite it.

    Could you link it?
    Because neither Java or Bukkit is made to work with it. Reload is the best that you can get, and even that is tricky.

    I will look up a tutorial on how to add a reload command, thanks! Would this count as solved?

    You are the one that determines if it is solved or not.
