My manager wants to switch a button on and off without changing the code itself. To do that, I used ResourceBundle to read the "showButton" parameter from a property file. However, ResourceBundle read the parameter and cached it, and I can't switch the button on or off without bouncing the server. I know Properties.load() will refresh the loading each time, but I have to hard code the location of the property file, and I don't want to do that because this piece of code will be moved around to different servers. Does anyone have a better idea how to do this?
Thanks in advance.
