The following question has been posted several times already but I didn't quite get the answer I was hoping for. Sorry for the repeat then.
I run Tomcat 5.5 with Axis 1.4. I have a WS that reads a properties file and calls another WS elsewhere based on the properties file's values namely the proxy host and port to be used.
In addition, within the same web-app where my WS sits, I have a servlet that allows me to edit the properties file and change the proxy values (for instance). I can easily load, read, edit, and save the properties file (which is located in the classes folder of the web app). However my WS is not picking up the changes. It keeps on using whatever initial values were in the properties file when Tomcat was first started regardless of the changes made.
Does anyone know how I can make my WS aware of the latest changes in the properties file? Does anyone know why my servlet simply picks it up and directly sees the changes?
No matter what they say in Ohio, we're still first in flight!
