Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator's Configuration File Reference

Dynamic Reconfiguration

Dynamic reconfiguration enables you to make configuration changes to a live web server without having to stop and restart the web server for the changes to take effect. You can dynamically change all configuration settings and attributes in the server.xml file and its associated files without restarting the server.

To access the dynamic reconfiguration screen and install a new configuration dynamically, click the Apply link in the upper right corner of the Server Manager, Class Manager, and Virtual Server Manager pages, click the Load Configuration Files button on the Apply Changes page. If there are errors in installing the new configuration, the previous configuration is restored.
