It depends upon how your service works.

If it loads all the XML files when the service is first created and from then on runs on the files in memory, then you will need to restart this service.

Can you give more details on what the service does and how it operates?

Richard QuadlingSenior Software DeveloperCommented:
Thanks. I wasn't expecting that answer to be accepted. Depending upon the service, if it can load the templates upfront and then check to see if they have been altered on each request (or if that is too high, once an hour or once every 100 requests), then the new ones can be loaded.
