Subject Re: Tomcat restart using code
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2009 16:15:11 GMT
Hi Jan,
well - like I said I need to be able to refresh the ServerSocketFactory to
reflect an updated truststore.  I looked at the code and found a way to do
this but it is not documented and I don't want to take the risk of
experiencing undesirable side effects.  My only option at this point then,
is to restart Tomcat which will of course cause the ServerSocketFactory to
be initialized with an updated truststore.  I use self signed certificates
dp I can't have a single truststore CA do the job for me, rather the trust
store must be updated from time to time for each client wishing to connect.

I will need the restart to be automated preferable through an api or
alternatively using some sort of a restart batch file.
thanks for your input,
