With early versions of WebSphere 7.0 and 6.1 we’ve seen that simple changes to an application will can take a considerable amount of time to become available within the server once sync’d. This problem is caused by using a version of WAS 7.0 that has not been patched through update #11 or 6.1 that has not been patched up to #31. Updating WAS to the most recent version will fix this problem
If you’d like to see what version you’re running prior to applying the update, you can open a shell window and navigate to the AppServer/bin folder and run the VersionInfo.bat program. This will give you the exact version of WAS you are currently on. When you apply the fix pack 11, the version should say 188.8.131.52.
