Custom navigation service - 2 questions



I have made a custom navigation service based on the PDK navigation connector example.

It comes in two flavours, both XML data and database data based.

The DB variant is far more flexible, however, when the service is loaded, the JNDI name for the datasource cannot be retrieved.

Question 1: Could this be the custom navigation service is loaded before the JNDI/JDBC service is loaded, and if so, is there a way to set the startup order?

The XML variant needs maintanance (updating the XML), and therefore refreshing/restarting the service.

However, when restarting the service, the new XML isn't loaded into the server, but it seems to use the old (cached?) version.

Question 2: Is there a way to force the service to use the updated XML file?

Hope someone can come up with a solution for either of these questions.

A workable solution will be rewarded with a can of beer 😊
