Is there a way to make HornetQ server (running in standalone mode) reload any changes to the configuration files or load new configuration files without restart?
I'm asking this question after looking at the source code in FileDeploymentManager class that has a thread to monitor the config files. But I was unable to figure out how to make it work.
It depends on what you are changing.
For instance, if you are changing journal size, timeout... or any other hard core parameters, you need to stop/start the server.
if you are changing the destinations or other settings regarding the destinations (security settings, paging settings, etc..) the deployers should kick in and redploy those settings.
