J2ee Server restart required in QA too?


For a requirement we had to change the field length of a field in BAPI. The earlier length was 8 and it has now been changed to 13.

Since this was a structural change, we got the J2ee server restarted, and then re-imported the model, and completed the bindings with the context that maintained the value for the text field.

With this, the 13 digit value appeared on portal as maintained in the backend.

We have transported these changes to QA system and here we face a problem! The value fetched from backend remains 8 digit only! the remaining 5 digits somehow get passed on to another context attribute.

I have placed message pop-ups to check what value is being passed after the BAPI execution, and this displays 8 characters only, where as, when the FM is executed individually, the output is displayed as a 13 digit character as maintained.

Do we have to restart the j2ee for QA too? What could be the reason for this issue? Can someone please help.

Best regards,

    what's the version of your j2ee server?

    if it is not that old, you can clear the rfc cache.

    if too old, you have to restart server.
