We are a small SAP Java development team and we don't use NWDI. We basically deploy our application to the server using NWDS. I've had to uninstall and reinstall my NWDS and now I cannot see application via my NWDS that I previously deployed to the server and I need to remove them from the server. How can I or my basis team undeploy applications on the server which runs on UNIX?
Thanks in advance
the only way to do undeployment as of 7.1 is that you use the Undeploy view of the NWDS.
Since SDM does not exists as of 71X and since JSPM does not support undeployment at the moment, and since we don't recommend to use the telnet admin tool for this operation, I kindly ask you to use only NWDS to trigger undeployment operations.
Maybe I have a unique issue then, I had to reinstall my NWDS and it does not show any of the application that I previously deployed to the server as an option to undeploy. In a case like this what would I do? There must be some other way to undeploy from the server other than NWDS.
can you please tell me your exact NWDS release?
You can find it out easily using the NWDS menu: Help -- About.
Reinstalling should have no effect on this, since the applications are located server side, and NWDS is just a client side application.
Sorry, but I had inhouse a long-long discussion about this before, and at the moment there are no other supported way to undeploy. As far as I know future releases (730) of JSPM will have a feature like undeploy but I cannot serve by details about plans. Currently NWDS is the only application you can use. Technically it is possible to use the j2ee telnet admin tool to undeploy, but since it is not checking deploy time dependencies , we cannot support it either.
you can use the UNDEPLOY command on your own risk. If the DC to be undeployed has no references to any other components though then I believe you cannot really cause any misbehaviour by executing this command.
