[ros-users] Best way to set the parameters for the controllers (param or message?)

I'm currently setting the parameters for the controllers (PID and so on) 
via a message (I have a subscriber which updates the values when it 
receives the corresponding message).

It works well, but I wanted to know what was the recommended way of 
doing that in ROS. Is it better to do it using parameters? (But then how 
can I  change the corresponding values when the parameters are updated?)
