Subject RE: Updating CRL in Tomcat 6 without taking it down

The problem I have is how to update the CRL.
If I do not update the CRL, Tomcat does not let any of my users in. It
blocks all the users.
To update the CRL, I have to stop the Tomcat, and I am trying to avoid


Call me naive, but if nobody can get in, what is wrong with restarting
to correct the problem?

Now, on to the heart of the problem.
AIUI, a CRL is something that is likely to be dynamic, not highly
dynamic, but changes are expected.
Most folks would probably like changes to be reflected as soon as
possible, as you'd like the system to dishonor revoked certs as soon as
they are known about.
So why doesn't Tomcat monitor the file for changes?  Are their technical
or policy reasons why it is not monitored?
I'm sure there are some security gurus out there who could shed some
light on this.
