Update existing iview using par file in NWDI

Hi,

First of all, sorry if question is very silly but I am starting to work with NWDI and I didn't find any clear documentation about this. I am reading help.sap.com NWDI documents but they are not very clear for my point of view.

This is my issue:

- I have an iview working in my EP 6.0.

- I want to upgrade it doing some changes using Developer Studio and NWDI.

- I have configured all NWDI infrastructure (SC, Track, etcÂ…). Additionally, I have Portal Development Server as J2EE engine in my Dev Studio.

- I created the Development component using a par file of my iview ( New DC - Enterprise Portal - Portal Application Module) and including existing .par file.

- I do changes in iview (some text in a page)

- I follow process to upload the code: Save code - Build - Checkin - Activate - Deploy.

I suppose this involves new version of iview is uploaded to Development Portal Server and new text has to appear in the ivew preview. But it doesn't work.

Any idea? Am I doing some wrong?

Thanks.

    You are using the wrong DC type. You need to use Portal Application Standalone.

    Portal Application Module does not have a deployable result (no SDA), whereas Portal Application Standalone does.

      The Portal Runtime sometimes does not reload updated portal components. You have two options to tackle this:

      1. Restart the Portal application (irj)

      2. Remove the involved Portal component using the Portal Administration Console and then redeploy it.
