As I study to use JBoss AS 5.0, I need to modify the system config xml file very often; such as logging, login, ...etc. After modify these system config xml file, do I need to restart JBoss AS.
As I know if the web.xml inside web application is modified, the web application will automatically restart itself (application only). How about the system config file?
Which one need to restart JBoss?
Which one do not need to restart JBoss?
Thanks in advance.
In general, modifications to xml files in the deploy directory will be applied during the next hot deploy (the hot deployer runs every 5 seconds by default), but changes to any files in the conf directory require a restart. One exception if jboss-log4j.xml - it gets reread every so often.
