Will quick reload be triggered automatically on every code change?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Developer Documentation: Automatic Plugin Reinstallation with QuickReload

I've created small Hello World REST module plugin.

public Response helloWorld() {
    return Response.ok("Hello World").build();

I've also created a web item (button) in atlassian-plugin.xml to be able to trigger this GET via UI:

<web-item key="get-hello-world" name="GET Hello World from REST" section="operations-top-level" weight="1">
        <label>GET Hello World</label>

Everything works fine. I see a button, I can click on it and then I am redirected to: http://localhost:2990/jira/rest/tjsd/latest/test/helloWorld

and in browser I see:

Hello World


Now I want to change "Hello World" message to "Hello Worlds". I use to change that in REST resource class like:

return Response.ok("Hello Worlds").build();

and then in terminal in project directory run: atlas-cli and then on prompt> pi 

It would rebuild and re-enable plugin and I could see the changes.

Now with this Quick Reload I don't see changes if I use it like you described in developer documentation.


Ah, here is my pom.xml (maybe something is wrong there):

No it won't. You have to do that manually by executing 

atlas-mvn package -DskipTests

Somewhere I read that QuickReload is triggered automatically on each 20s or so, but I can not confirm that this works.
