On Fusion Middleware Reports Services version 11.1, when replacing the JSP report with a newly updated JSP report, the report output will not display the new updates unless WLS_REPORTS is restarted.

That was not the case in Application Server OC4J (10gR1 and 10gR2); everytime a new JSP report is uploaded, the new jsp report is executed and get the new result without restarting the server/OC4J_BI_Forms.
