About Web Services Cache Refresh
Both Siebel Inbound and Outbound Web Services are typically cached into memory on the Siebel Server. At times, administrators need to update the definitions of these services to provide more current or correct functionality. Administrators have the ability to directly refresh the memory cache in real time, without stopping and restarting Siebel services.
The Web Services cache is used to store all the global administration information that can be manipulated in the Inbound and Outbound Web Service administration views.
The Clear Cache feature requires user interaction. The administrator decides when the Web Service configuration must be refreshed. When used, Web Service configuration changes can be made without restarting the Siebel Server or the Server Component that uses the configuration.
The Clear Cache feature is a button on the Administration - Web Services screen. This feature is available for inbound and outbound Web Services.
