JBoss Tools doesn't do anything specific for pages.xml beyond making sure the file is copied to the deployment when you edit it. 

If Seam supports it then it should work - but I must admit I haven't tried it for that specific feature. Where did you read about it ?

Why should tomcat reload the app because Seam dynamically reload classes from the /dev folder ?

anonymous wrote : This sounds like it defeats the purpose as tomcat redeploys the entire app on every class file change unless you set up the context.xml file but then your files are not copied to the target dirs.

I don't understand "but then your files are not copied to the target dirs" ? What does that mean ? (btw. tomcat eclipse integration is not done by jboss tools, its done by WTP)

About your other question since the files are in /dev and not in /classes then tomcat doesn't know about them so it shouldn't care.

Yup, but if the .class are in the "normal" classpath location then Seam wouldn't be able to do anything - then it becomes the VM or the container's job.
