WAS 6.1 - Cached jar issue

Hi All,

Where does WAS cache the jars present in the lib directory? I have a dynamic web app that is using a jar (custom jar built by us) running on WAS 6.1. I am using RAD during development. The dynamic webapp is not recognizing the changes made in the jar and keeps referring to the old version of the jar. For ex: I have added new methods to a class but when I startup the web app and test, it gives an error saying method not defined for the class (I can see the changes present in the jar that is deployed to the lib folder). I have tried uninstall , install, rename , install, restart - all the options that I could think of, but no use. Can someone help in identifying the cause for this or with any ideas to fix?

Any pointers will be of immense help.

Thanks in advance,

I agree. Here's the link:
