Changing an WD application name

I need to change an application name (in Spanish). I get to change the description, but in SE80, in the tree, I still see the old application name, and it's bein used as title for the view.

How do I change the actual application name?

Thank you in advance.


I've checked that method UPDATE_HEADER_TITLE

calls method wd_assist->if_wd_component_assistance~get_text,

with the application name:

  DATA lv_application_name TYPE string.
  lv_application_name = ls_general-application_name.
  IF lv_application_name IS INITIAL.
    lv_application_name = wd_assist->mo_fpm_api->application_wd_name.
    IF lv_application_name IS INITIAL. "Still initial ?
      lv_application_name = wd_assist->if_wd_component_assistance~get_text(
        key = 'G01' ). "Unkown

    Hello Soledad, the field "DESCRIPTION" in the web dynpro aplication is the title that the WD shows at runtime.

    If it is empty, then the WD shows the name of the WD Application.

    Hope it helps-

      Hello, Mariano:

      That's the text I had already changed.

      As it turned out, I had to change an OTR text to which the application name was changed in an used WD component configuration for the application I was working with. Quite difficult to guess without actually seeing it.
