websphere, v6.1.

I added a new property and updated a property in storetext.properties and storetext_en_US.properties file and the change is not showing.  I flushed cache, delete compiled files, app restart, server restart.  No matter what I do I cannot see the change with the one I updated and the one I added just shows ???ACT_ap1??? it doesnt pull in the new property.  I am wondering if there is anything else I should be doing other then the already listed.  flushed cache, delete compiled files, app restart, server restart.

I suppose you're using websphere commerce, is that right ?

if so, take a look here:



# Export the following file from your development environment: Stores > Java Resources > src > ConsumerDirect > storetext.properties

   1. In the WebSphere Application Server administrative console, click Applications > Enterprise Applications.
   2. Select your application name, for example WC_demo, and click Update.
   3. Select Single File.
   4. In the Relative path to file field, type Stores.war\WEB-INF\classes\ConsumerDirect\storetext.properties
   5. In the New or replacement files section, check the local file system and click browse and specify the path to the storetext.properties file you exported.
   6. Click Next.
   7. Click OK.
   8. When the update completes, click Save to save the Master Configuration.

I did find a 2nd way of doing it after following the instructions.  Basically the setup I am working with has two locations with properties files and apparently I was updating the wrong one (to my defense it was the default location and there were modified property files).  Once i found the correct location I was able to copy the files over and restart the app.
