I need some help regarding loading properties files in Weblogic without restarting the server. Here are details for the same :
All the text on our site is referred to as Screencopies that are used for localisation. In the code the screen copies are accessed through ResourceManager. This data is kept in locale based properties file which are about 400KB each (4 locales). These properties files are loaded at the time of Weblogic start up.
Currently we are loading these properties files through weblogic class loader at the startup.
Weblogic servers have to be restarted for any change in these files. It is not possible for us to restart the servers frequently. How can we make frequent changes to Screencopies, which means that we should be able to deploy these files at run time without restarting the weblogic servers.
The version of weblogic we are using is as below
Weblogic 8.1 Sp4 on windows 2003 , using JDK 1.4.2
