Stuff in WEB-INF/classes gets loaded onto the WAR classloader, so it cant be reloaded w/o restarting the deployment. Stuff in WEB-INF/dev gets loaded by a special Seam classloader, so it can be reloaded any time it changes.

"reloadable" classes don't go into WEB-INF/classes during development. "non-reloadable" classes, eg. Hibernate entities live in WEB-INF/classes.

I'm afraid to say it does, at least until the EJB3 container supports a similar mechanism.
