Upgrading

Back to User Guide Index

Upgrades *must* be tested against a *backup* of your live database!

  • A test environment with a standalone server and a test database is highly recommended.

Upgrading the web application side:

  • Download a released war file or build a custom version.
  • Stop the running servlet (e.g. Tomcat).
  • Move the old war file and deployed folder to a backup location.
  • Place the new war file in the webapps directory and start the servlet.

Upgrading the database side:

  • Where there are no changes to the schema (domain class folder) between versions nothing further needs to be done.
  • Officially released versions (1.0.0, 1.1.2 etc) will have upgrade scripts released either here or with the software.
  • Upgrade scripts will be sequential (to upgrade from 1.0.0 to 1.0.2 may have two sets of scripts that must be executed in order).
