Need urgent help!! - Weblogic Server 10.3.6

We are experiencing a weird issue with Weblogic server 10.3.6


We are deploying custom WebCenter Portal Framework Application to Weblogic Server via the EM Console.

The structure of the servers is - We have a cluster with two managed servers on the same system. We deploy the app to the cluster itself.


The steps followed are -

- Undeploy the old app.

- Delete MDS Partition

- Clear tmp, cache folders on both managed servers.

- Restart the managed servers.

- Deploy new EAR file.

- Create new MDS partition


The ear file has a time stamp appended to the name. So on every deployment the name of the ear file is different.


The problem is - even with the above steps followed, we can see that the changes in the JSPX pages are not reflecting. We can see the changes in the Java code being reflected, but whatever changes on the JSPX pages we make are not reflected. Then randomly after multiple attempts we can see the changes.

We even tried clearing tmp on the AdminServer and restarting.


Now the solution we tried was - During build time we are invoking weblogic.appc and compiling the jspx pages and packaging the generated servlets with the ear file itself. For the first couple of times it worked but then the same issue appeared again. May be it worked randomly, not sure about that.


One more thing is that if you go to the tmp folder on the managed servers and decompile the servlet class generated, they have old code, but if you decompile the servlet classes in the ear file we can see the changes, since the jspx pages are manually compiled.


We also tried the precompile and page check seconds option in weblogic.xml but to no avail.

We are not able to figure out from where the weblogic server is picking the old code. If we do a locate for any of the jspx pages on the server, we find them only in the tmp folder.


Any help would be appreciated.
