How To update a Mobile Component

After struggling for almost a day, wondering why I couldn't deploy my AWT mobile app to my local ME Client (I was missing the Manifest file, but couldn't for the life of me figure out why the Mobile Component was not being updated), I finally figured out how:

It doesn't help to delete the Mobile Component in the WebConsole and recreate it, because you still have the same file sitting in /pub/meapps/awt. Even if you select Change, and update the file from the same file path on your local drive, this does not update the file on the server. You have to make sure that you are uploading the .jar file from a different path (simply changing the name of the .jar file is enough).

I hope these kind of problems can be fixed in future versions of ME. Any SAP ME Developers reading this?

    Hi,

    think i've got the same problem.

    I've "fixed" it by changing the apps version resp. build no at upload-time in WebConsole. Then you're able to deploy it again.

    You're hopes are mine too 😊

    i guess it won't be changed in the future. Because of the archive and backup functionality in the admin interface, the service has to keep all the files.

    Better you assign a new version number to each file you upload to the system

    cheers
