Change JSP-file in SCA-file?

Hi all,

we want to change a jsp-file which is used in an sca->ppa->war->...

To unzip the whole file way down is no problem at all. To build a new war-file should be possible too with nwds. But how can we deploy this changes on the web as, remarking, that the former sca-file is already deployed there and has to be overwritten (part of it)

Is there a chance to do this without using the NWDI or are we forced to use NWDI?

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards, Patrick.

    Hi Patrick,

    you can just extract each part of the sca down to the war and change the jsp as you already suggested. Than pack everything again to your sca. You will not need any special tools just an unzip/zip-tool.

    After that you can deploy the changed sca using SDM (if you are on NW 2004 or 7.0).

    Here is the documentation:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/en/92/fb673ba8ecf22fe10000000a11402f/frameset.htm

    The import thing for the deployment will be that you chose:

    Update deployed SDAs/SCAs that have any version

    (see the documentation above)

    Otherwise your changed SCA will not be deployed because you did not change the version information and the SDM will think you are deploying the same sca again before your changes to the JSP.

    Hope it helps.

    Best regards,

    Stefan Brauneis

      Hi Stefan,

      thank you for your answer.

      Using a zip-tool is really straight forward.

      But I see one problem, using your way of solving this problem:

      If SAP will have a new service pack realeased, and you will install this service pack, the changes will be overwritten.

      Is there a possibility, to make my changes "visible".

      Kind regards, Patrick.
