I have a background process that can update the keystore Tomcat uses for its SSL credentials. I would like to be able to have Tomcat reload this automatically without needing a manual restart.

Is it possible to have Tomcat reload this without restarting, or is there a programmatic way that it could be done instead?

I don't believe there is a way to do it automatically although your background process could restart tomcat automatically. The keystore only gets read once when the jvm is initialized. There might be a solution if you were to write your own handler that periodically re-checks the keystore but I personally haven't found any examples of this on the Internet.
