I have a polygon vector shapefile in which each feature has an integer attribute. I want to update this integer attribute (for all features) programmatically using Java on regular intervals of time.
How can I do this?
EDIT: I am using GeoServer to display my shapefile over the network. Since one of the attributes is continuously changing on a daily basis, I need to reflect that by modifying the shapefile. I want these changes to further reflect in GeoServer without restarting the GeoServer.
