Hi guys,

I'm recently rewriting a project using Thin + Rack instead of Webrick
+ custom implementations of AbstractServlet.
So far so good, I'm really happy with it, especially for performance.
90% of the code is ported successfully.

Anyway, I'm wondering if it's possible to reload URLs seen by Thin/
Rack after it's started.
I mean, adding new items to the Hash passed to Rack::URLMap after you
start Thin.

I need this because some modules of the application may need to bind
to /whatever.class for example Java applets, that will be served with
Rack::File.

I was playing a bit with Rack::URLMap.remap and Rack::Reloader with no
success.
Can you point me to the right direction?
I was also Googling a lot and reading the ruby docs, but I wasn't able
to find what I need.

Thanks for you help
Michele

At the end Rack::URLMap.remap did the trick,
so every time you add a URL/handler to the Rack mount map
you just shoot remap and Thin will be aware of that.

Thanks Marc for the suggestion offline ;)

Cheers
Michele

michele, could you post the code that allowed you to add new mappings on the fly?

thanks!
