I have 3 MDBs that share one work manager which has a max threads contraints and I would like change the count of threads in my application to limit the concurrent count of 3 MDBs.
I used the MBean and I can change the count in my application and save and activate it without a problem, I can see that it's changed and saved into config.xml.
However I also found out if weblogic starts with count=5 and I change it to a bigger number like 10, although it's saved in config.xml, the concurrent count of 3 MDBs can never go beyond 5, it only changes between 1 and 5. I have to restart weblogic for 10 to take effect, which is not what I wanted.
Is this a defect? Because when I make a change to the count and save it in admin console, it says "no restarts are necessary".
