ASF GitHub Bot (Jira)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-136?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13220339#comment-13220339 ]

Oliver Heger commented on CONFIGURATION-136:
--------------------------------------------

Thanks for your contribution, but we need a patch of the source code (that's why it's called Open Source ;-). Then we can incorporate it in our code base for the next release. Your IDE should be able to generate the patch, otherwise you can use {{svn diff}} on the command line. More information can be found at http://commons.apache.org/patches.html.

> Current reloading process clears current properties and load updated values from
> resource reader. If an IO error occurs (or invalid format), the configuration
> gets corrupted and the application becomes unstable.
> It may be better for hot-reload to put loaded values into a temporary Properties
> and replace previous values only when reloading is successful.
> It may also allow to use a 'currentlty-reloading' flag in the synchronized
> 'reload' block to avoid blocking threads during a reload (they could access
> safelly the 'old' properties until reload is finished)
