[logback-user] Configure at runtime

Logback supports reconfiguration via JMX. The configureAndWatch method in 
DOMConfigurator create a separate thread watching for updates. This can cause 
very significant problems when the hosting application is hot-(re)deployed.

Nevertheless, I think it is still possible to support automatic reloading 
without adding a separate thread. Could you please add a jira issue asking for 
this feature?
