I have a requirement to make our web application to reload the ResourceBundle (a properties file) for regular interval. Basically this is to avoid restarting the application server for .properties file changes (FYI..we use Struts Framework and Jboss application server).
For this, I used a util class which will extends ResourceBundle.Control in Java SE 6 and override its getFormats() and newBundle() methods, made getTimeToLive method to return different timeToLive values TTL_DONT_CACHE,0 etc.. and passed this instance to in ResourceBundle.getBundle method.
PROBLEM IS: With these changes I couldnt achive the expected outcome. Application is not reloading the cache for any of the timeToLive I mentioned above.. I also have a doubt how can I do same changes on jsp which uses <bean:message .. > tag.
Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere... or suggest any other alternative. Any help is really appreciated.
Below is the util class (ResourceBundleController) used FYI ::
