We have some rules that we enforce on our struts action and package configurations. We currently enforce these by validating the configuration in non-production environments in a DispatcherListener.dispatcherInitialized() implementation.
That works great at startup but, in development, I dynamically reload the configuration (say to fix an action definition), DispatcherListener.dispatcherInitialized() is not invoked, and so the configuration I reloaded is not revalidated.
It would be great if struts2 supported a ConfigurationListener interface that could listen for at least init complete, and reload complete events. I could see a lot of practical uses for that. Thanks!
