Reinitializing Context or Web Application in JBoss

Hi All,

I have a JBoss Service that has a list of environment specific configurations which it places within the JNDI. My web application picks these configurations up from the JNDI when it initializes. However, if I want to change any of those configurations in the JBoss Service, then I would have to restart the JBoss Server in order for the web application to pick them up. What I would like to know is if there is a way to do any of the following:

1. Reinitialize the web application or web application context at runtime through JBoss.
2. Have the jboss service fire off a change event that could be picked up by a listener on the Web Application side which can then make the necessary updates.

If there are any other solutions, please let me know.

Thanks,

Juan

Which version of JBoss AS is this? And how do you configure that JBoss service? Through MBeans?

My apologies,

The version of the JBoss AS is 5.1.0.GA, and the JBoss service is configured through MBeans.

Thanks,

Juan
