[keycloak-user] Change keycloak.json adapter config on the fly

Well, the keycloak.json config is just a means to configure
a KeycloakDeployment from an AdapterConfig object. Specifically for the the
Spring adapter, the AdapterDeploymentContextBean would have to be aware
that the deployment changed. There would be a minimal amount of code needed
to support that and we can modify AdapterDeploymentContextBean to be more

Just so I understand what you're asking for: you want to be able to update
a KeycloakDeployment on-the-fly, correct? Also, you're aware that a
keycloak.json can be configured at startup via either environment variables
on command like properties, correct? You have to change at runtime?

I think the AdapterDeploymentContextBean should be as flexible as possible,
however I have a small concern about the security of allowing certain
properties to be swapped at runtime (e.g. the realm-public-key and
the auth-server-url).
