>             Project: Apache NiFi
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.0, 1.3.0, 1.4.0, 1.5.0
>            Reporter: Bryan Bende
>            Assignee: Sivaprasanna Sethuraman
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 1.6.0
> If you have a processor/Controller Service/Reporting Task that has a property 
> with dynamicallyModifiesClasspath(true) and you set the value to a directory, 
> the resources in that directory will only be calculated when that property 
> changes. This means if you added JARs to the directory later, and stopped and 
> started your processor, those new JARs still won't be available. You would 
> have to change the property to a new directory, or back and forth to some 
> other directory, to force a recalculation.
> The setProperties method in AbstractConfiguredComponent is where it looks at 
> incoming property changes and determines if any were for classpath related 
> properties and then calls reload accordingly.
> We would need to consider the case where setProperties is never even being 
> called, someone just stops and starts the processor and would want to pick up 
> any new JARs added.
> A possible solution might be to computer some kind of hash/fingerprint of the 
> URLs each time reload is called, and then when starting the processor we 
> could recompute the fingerprint and compare it to the previous one. If they 
> are different then we call reload before starting the component.
