About Web Services Cache Refresh
Both Siebel inbound and outbound Web services are typically cached into memory on the Siebel Server. At times, administrators must 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 the Siebel server.
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 is a button on the Administration - Web Services screen. This feature is available for inbound and outbound Web services. When the administrator decides when the Web service configuration must be refreshed, he or she clicks Clear Cache.
When Clear Cache is clicked, the integration object and Web services definitions in the run-time database are invalidated. Object definitions are reloaded when requested in the client.
