How to change the JCO reference to an existing model



We had created a few models with the 2 - default (WD_model..) JCO references, now is it possible to change the references to a different custom /name without re-importing the models again ?

The issue for us is very critical because, we need to maintain unique reference for all the models under each application for the same server.

please let us know asap.

If you want to change only the JCO Destinations that your model refers to, then its very much possible to change their names.

But if the model stucture has got changed , then you should reimport that.

I guess, trying out the following steps for changing the names will work out for you.

1) For Medata Dest--

a) Click on the local disctionary stucture that has been generated by importing the model.

b) Click on the properties tab on the bottom right corner.There you shoulb be able to change the Metadata dest name.

2) For Application data Dest-

a) Right Click on model classes (model_Input & model_output) & then click EDIT.

b) Same Way, on the bottom right corner , Change whichever proerty you want to alter inlcuding the Dest Name.

In this way, you can mainten unique JCO references for all the models you are using in your project.

ReBudild & Redploy the entire project . Create the New JCOs Destinations in the content Admin & happily run your application.
