Hi Paul.

The traditional problem with Resource Bundles is that they are loaded
through the class loader and the class loader _caches_ the result for ever.
This mean that it usually requires a web container restart to pick up a
change in the property files. (you can also do it as a class, but it is
rather cumbersome and seldom used)

I have not yet tried this myself, but it appears that there now is a
clearCache() method on the ResourceBundle to overcome this limitation,
making it much easier to trigger a reload from within your application.

Did you mention why you were looking for alternative ways to do this?

Thanks for the response. What specific changes in JDK 6 are you referring
to relative to resource bundles? Are you talking about The ability to store
the .PROPERTIES file on the classpath and override properties in the
web-inf/lib directory?

Thanks, Paul
