When I renew my SSL certificate and update my keystore, is it possible to

Yes it is possible since we fixed

There are gotchas in doing that, but the more feedback we get on this
feature, the better we can round off rough edges.

That sounds excellent. Is there any documentation/examples showing how to use this feature? My initial thought is to add a thread that wakes up every so many hours, checks the date on the keystore, and reloads if it's been updated... but then I need to locate the keystore file... I could add a servlet config parameter, but maybe there's another way? Any suggestions?
