re-initializing a controller or a model in production mode

How do I re-initialize a controller / model in production mode so that
it reloads?

@instance.reload
is available for every ActiveRecord-Object.

or you can use
  reload!
to reload everything.

IIRC reload! is only defined in a console session

IIRC reload! is only defined in a console session

that may be right. i never really used it anywhere else than in
console.

The issue I have is with active_scaffold setting itself up when the
controller loads in production mode. While I can use
active_scaffold_config to change options, it would be easy to wipe the
slate clean and reload the controller for a particular scenario. The
alternative is to reload the application server which is an overkill.
