Is it possible to add new properties to a resource bundle without restarting a jvm?
The exact case is: we have all the language specific strings in property files and as you know they are loaded after a jvm started. Our weblogic starts in about 3 minutes or something and there is no way to make the process of adding a new property to a resource bundle and seeing on the html page in the browser..
The current scheme is:
1. Add the property to a bundle. 2. Stop weblogic 3. Start weblogic
It takes about 5 or 6 minutes. It is very long for me. Is there a way to make it faster (maybe by loading bundles w/o jvm restart)?
Also, there is another way you can reload the changes without restarting the server. I think you need to read the property file again, put the values in a HashMap and put it under the session. In the JSP you need to use the session object to populate the values in the properties file.
