Changes in quick linkers require EA restart?
« on: January 18, 2018, 09:28:02 pm »
Hi,

Is it true, that changes in quick linkers require application restart? I found this the only way to have them working, but it's extremely convenient to say the least. Is there any attribute to be switched on to change this?

Regards,
Daniel

Hi DanielB

Yes a restart is required for MDG quicklinkers to get updated in repository.
Unfortunately there isn't any option for it  :( :(.

Hi Daniel,

I haven't checked for QuickLinker, but for other elements of the MDG, we don't have to restart EA to get the updated MDG installed.  The QuickLinker is a global structure (to which each MDG supplies a portion), so I suspect that it is not possible to unload the existing QuickLinker for a specific MDG (probably because each entry is NOT tagged with the MDG(s) that provided it).  Hence a restart is required.  You can append (as you load MDGs dynamically), but you can't remove.

HTH,
Paolo
