Enable tomcat.keystore reloading without 'restarting the service'

There is an example on the Web of Java code that can enable the UCD tomcat.keystore be reread periodically without have to restart the master server service. But in addition to enabling that capability, a new keystore password needs to be not only pushed to the running service, but be encrypted and stored to the file in order to keep everything in sync. The reload is known to work because a customization has been successfully implemented, but it would be improved if the password file could be periodically checked for changes and reloaded as needed.

    Thank you very much. I just changed the title and will discuss with the development team.

    Was wondering if you can change the title. I automatically typed in "rebooting" but the action really is "restarting the service". I will be available on and off through the week but hopefully my schedule will return to normal next week. We recently migrated the process to our Production environment, and it has been stable. Let me know what you need from me.
