Subject [HELP] Forcing Context Reload (watched resource) via Java Code
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2006 19:52:05 GMT
Hi All


I'm using Tomcat 5.5.9 on Java 1.5.under mixed OS's. 



The question is one of forcing a context/webapp reload via java code - is
this possible? I know adding a watched resource or adding a new lib triggers
a reload (so hopefully to trigger this via code is possible).


We use a dedicated Tomcat per application so even if Tomcat had to be fully
restarted - this would help.



Basically I am writing out the JDBC details from within a servlet on startup
(which is fine) but by this time the datasources are already available (but
wrongly configured) so I need to force a reload with the correct details. I
appreciate this is a little big of a frig but I have tried every thing else
(Dynamic datasources, etc) but with a read-only Tomcat context I was unable
to bind them.


Any help or pointers are much appreciated.


Thanks in advance
