The Step-By-Step Solution:

1. Delete the Development Component metadata definition in DTR.

In DTR perspective of NetWeaver Developer Studio: -> Repository Browser -> open tree: -> inavtive -> SCs -> _comp -> TopLevelDCs.

Then select all Development Components to delete by deleting the correspondung file.

2. Delete the content of Development Component in DTR.

In DTR perspective of NetWeaver Developer Studio: -> Repository Browser -> open tree: -> inavtive -> DCs ->_comp Delete all non-local files by menue: Delete -> Folder or Delete -> Subtree.

3. Activate your changes via CBS in Netweaver Developer Studio (in Avtivation View).

4. Release the changes for transport in Transport View of Netweaver Developer Studio.

5. Import the changes in development/consolidation/test system(s) via CMS WebUI.

6. Assembly of new SCA in CMS WebUI to build a new Software Component Archive file for delivery.

    OK, maybe a “dumb” question but perhaps something someone else might be to shy to ask.

    “Why would someone need to or want to delete Development Components?”

    Perhaps you could give us a little background in your short tutorial?

      The background is, there is no “official” way mentioned in the documentation and nearly every second customer ask for deletion of DCs in JDI environment (e.g. you created a DC that is not needed any more and want to remove the DC).

  2. This info is very helpfull!, apart from this if some one throws more light on version conflicts it will be helpfull.Simple example with steps for Sceanrio2+ added advantage.

    Hi!
    I have problem when deleting, in step 2.

    “2. Delete the content of Development Component in DTR.

    In DTR perspective of NetWeaver Developer Studio: -> Repository Browser -> open tree: -> inavtive -> DCs ->_comp Delete all non-local files by menue: Delete -> Folder or Delete -> Subtree.”

    Each folder an/or Subtree is grey and cannot be deleted!

    Any suggestions?

    It helped me to delete unnecessary DC, 10x for the nice article.

    For those who have problems on step 2:
    1. Make sure you are trying to delete the subtree on level “_comp”.
    2. Carefully check if there are no local-only files. These are files available only on your local machines. Delete manually (via any file manager) those local files and try again the deletion from DTR.

    Best regards,
    Marian
