Executing application.dobackgroundprocessing() more than once

Hi Gurus,

Is there a way to execute the command application.dobackgroundprocessing() more than once.  Say for example during initialization of the dashboard, application.dobackgroundprocessing() gets executed.  Inside the application I want to run the application.dobackgroundprocessing() again to process something else.  Here is how it goes:

During Initializaton COUNT == 1

During an event inside the application, COUNT == 2

In background process scripting page

if(COUNT == 1){

  Do some stuff


elseif (COUNT == 2){

Do some stuff


I am not on 1.5 so parallel processing is not an option.

Thank you all for your help

Hi Raj,

Yes, you can execute doBackgroundProcessing() more than once.  Refer to the chaining example in section 3. Initialize data sources in "background processing" section of the blog Optimize the Performance of your SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio Solutions - Tips and Tricks.
