Tomcat doesn't have a cache. And property files are data files. In order for changes in data to "take", the code that reads that data needs to be informed that it must re-read the properties, assuming the usual scenario where the properties are loaded into a Properties object all at once.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
