JavaEE Cartridge: Does edits to recording.config require application server restart ?
Modifying any JavaEE configuration from the FMS console > Agent Properties page will restart recording automatically. Its true for anyapplication servers (WebLogic, WebSphere, OracleAS, JBoss or Xagent ).
That said, there are certain configurations (like instrumentation.config, agent_type_*, agent_instrumentor_*) that requires an application server restart, but most of the collector configs, recording.config, URL transform configs etc do not require appserver restart. And the behavior is same for all application servers.
