AS-Java (EP-BI-Java) brtools backup vs Export for restoration purpose

May seem a novice question but would like to have input on whether an offline Oracle backup of a Java SAP instance is sufficient for safe restoration. We are using SAP Export of the instances currently for the purpose of keeping system backups. Should a complete backup of system not be sufficient instead of taking exports of system.

Does backup of system skips or misses any java configurations ?

Thanks.

    Java instances store lots of information on the local filesystem in all kinds of XML and .properties files. Some of the content is also in the database but most of it is not.

    That's why a database backup only is not sufficient (as in ABAP instances), you have to take a filesystem backup at the same time you do the database backup to keep the content in sych.
