How to rename the BOE web application or the web application source tree in SAP Business Objects Business Intelligence Platform 4.0

Environment

SAP Business Objects Business Intelligence Platform 4.0

The source tree folder is located in: <BOE_INSTALL_DIR>/SAP BusinessObjects/SAP BusinessObjects/warfiles/webapps

  • Locate the BOE web application configuration file, BOE.properties in : <BOE_INSTALL_DIR>/SAP BusinessObjects/SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0/wdeploy/conf/apps

  • Rename BOE.properties so that it reflects the new name for the web application WAR file. For example, rename the web application from BOE to MYBOE, and so the BOE.war will be already renamed to MYBOE.war. Rename BOE.properties to MYBOE.properties.

  • Use a text editor to update the contents of the newly named .properties file. Update the web application information in the configuration file. For example, rename the web application from BOE to MYBOE, replace <WEB_APP_NAME> with MYBOE.

  • Rename BOE.xml so it reflects the new name for the web application WAR file. For example, rename the web application from BOE to MYBOE, and so the BOE.war or BOE.ear will be already renamed to MYBOE.war or MYBOE.ear. Rename BOE.xml to MYBOE.xml. The WDeploy tool can now deploy the newly-named web application to the web application server.

Hope you find this useful.
