I am retrieving emails from a mail box using pop3 over SSL. For that purpose I am setting a truststore variable as a system property.

Everything works fine.
But lets say that, in my current executing thread, this parameter needs to be altered runtime, to, Say to another certificate file.

The program fails to pick up the new certificate file and still refers to the one set the first time.!

I see that this property is being set only once on program initiation. I have to restart the program for any modification to take place.

Any subsequent modification is not being considered.
Is this how this was designed to work or am i missing something?

Any help is appreciated ....
