It is possible to detect and reload changes directly out of the router configuration file routerconfig.xml. The associated interval driven watchdog can be enabled by setting the following system property of the SwiftMQ Router to a millisecond interval to check for changes, e.g. every minute:


Detected and applied changes are logged to the info.log of the router, errors are logged to the error.log.

The watchdog is disabled by default for compatibility reasons.
