I went through the process of creating a business entity, adding the JSDO service to the mobile app project, and mapping the service to the fields in my mobile app.
Next I made additions to the business entity, and used the Edit Mobile Service dialog in PDSOE to rebuild the service's .json file.
Now, how do I update the service in the project in my mobile app? Do I have to delete the service, re-add it to the project, and redo all my mappings?
You need to do a Create new using the same catalog file. This will add any missing services so all new server operations would be added as new services. We do not remove any existing services since as you say that would remove all the mappings you have worked so hard to do :-)
If you have updated an operation on the server side, you need to delete the matching service in the Mobile App Builder before re-importing the catalog. This will create a new service with the new signature.
Would deleting the service before re-importing not result in the mapping disappearing as well?

That's what I found. Deleting the service dropped the mapping.
I was adding a new field to the temp-table. Is it possible to add a field to a temp-table without dropping and re-adding the services?
I hope so;-) Otherwise you have to get it right the first time
Seriously though - if you cannot update an existing service with extra fields, then I can see that you would end up wasting huge amounts of time redoing work all the time.
It is possible. In service settings' request and response parameters you can add another parameter (which is basically a field). Same for removing fields from the TT. I have never tried this approach when changing relations or adding/removing tables.
