How to commit Embedded Openfire server

I have an openfire server running embedded in a Java application. When I make a change to the serverinfo object, the changes won’t take affect until I kill the java process and restart it. Since the server isn’t running in standalone mode, the stop and restart methods are disabled. What is the correct way to make my changes take affect immediately upon altering the object?

I’ve been trying to find an answer to this for about a week and have yet to come across anything in the forums. I also tried to get on the weekly open chat, but the web chat client wouldn’t load.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
