Using the Java plug-in server for dynamic plug-in loading

Dynamic plug-in loading is adding or loading a new plug-in definition in the plug-in server without stopping and restarting the AR System server.

To enable dynamic plug-in loading, you must specify a reload delay before starting the plug-in server (use the Reload Delay configuration option in the AR System Administration: Plugin Server Configuration form). For more information on AR System Administration: Plugin Server Configuration form, see Setting plugin server configuration options.

When a delay is specified, the system automatically loads plug-ins and initiates them for all worker threads after the delay period without requiring a plug-in server restart. During the delay period, you can modify the new plug-in configuration if necessary. (If you modify it after the delay, you must restart the plug-in server to make your changes take effect.) For information about restarting the plug-in server, see Restarting the plug-in server using the Set Server Info command

The following example provides the steps to configure the Atrium SSO plug-in using only the Java plug-in server.

To configure the Atrium SSO plug-in using only the Java plug-in server

  1. Make the following changes in the AR System Administration: AR System Configuration Generic UI form:
    Comment out the Plugin: areaatriumsso.dll entry (if it exists) and also comment out all the native area plug-in related entries.
  2. Make the following changes in the AR System Administration: Plugin Server Configuration form:
    1. Delete the ARSYS.AREA.ATRIUMSSO plug-in.
