Subject [jira] Created: (CONFIGURATION-381) Support automatic reloading for configuration files in JBoss VFS
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2009 13:13:14 GMT
Support automatic reloading for configuration files in JBoss VFS
----------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CONFIGURATION-381
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-381
             Project: Commons Configuration
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: File reloading
    Affects Versions: 1.6
            Reporter: Panagiotis Astithas
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: commons-configuration-vfs.patch

Using Commons Configuration with JBoss 5 presents problems when storing files in the JBoss
directories and referencing them with relative paths. This applies to configuration files
stored in the traditional spot for JBoss configuration, like JBOSS_HOME/server/default/conf/.
More specifically, when FileChangedReloadingStrategy tries to resolve the file path it gets
a vfsfile: URL from the JBoss-modified context classloader, that it can't parse. The following
patch adds support for this URL scheme by fixing the resource URL to avoid VFS, and allows
Commons Configuration to properly recognize file modifications in the file system.
