i want to add a table with some currecny exchange values that i have to

Do you mean a table on a web page or a table in the database?
the problem is i have to update the file and restart the webserver to
have the change taking effect .
I presume from this that you mean the data is in a file.
Is there another way to do it on a simple file without having to restart
the webserver ?
One solution is to put the currency data in a table in the database.
Write a rake task to read from the file and update the db and run this
when the file changes. You could just put the update code in
db/seeds.rb and then run rake db:seed (which runs seeds.rb).
