Hi,

I have a Resource Adapter (".rar" file) deployed into Websphere 5.1.1 .
Unfortunately, whenever I update the installation (new version of the ".rar" file), I also have to restart the server(!) . Otherwise the changes don't apply, and it keeps using the old rar...

Is that how it's supposed to work, or could I be doing something wrong ?
I update the rar through the *admin console*, using these steps:

1. remove the old rar
2. install the new rar (and new instances of it, registered in JNDI)
3. *save* (to master configuration)
4. restart any applications (such as ".war" files) that rely on this rar.

As I said, the above steps don't seem to be enough, and I also have to restart the server, which is a problem. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanx

Nope, you have to restart the server if you install a new RAR. You can modify RAR settings in place though in most cases without reinstalling it. Use the admin console and pull up a list of attributes for a RAR.

I say 'most' because this attribute list can be disabled and not editible. All of this is configurable though.
