Update i18n files in addon without restarting Jira

add-on
plugin-development

#1

Hi all,

I’m developing an addon for Jira. There is a gadget in there, that has localized strings (aka i18n text messages in a .properties file).

Now, when I add an entry to the properties file, rebuild the addon and quickreload it on my development jira, the new i18n messages cannot be used in the gadget. You have to restart Jira in order for them to show up.

This also happens, when you update the addon on a running production instance of Jira.

Is there a way to make Jira refresh the translations/i18nn/properties files without restarting the instance?

Thanks.
