Hi folks,

what's the easiest way to upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2.1?

Export apps, reinstall formspider and import apps back into newest version? Or apply an upgrade on existing version 1.1?

Thanks for advice, Tomas

Hi Tomas,

There are pros and cons of both approaches.

If you choose upgrade scripts:

  • You need to run all scripts one by one in the Formspider schema.
  • You need to replace the Formspider Middle Tier folder.
  • You do not need to change Formspider schema name and Middle Tier context root name.
  • You do not need to export/import your application between versions.

If you choose to make a new Formspider installation:

  • Easier because there is an installer which guides you.
  • You may keep old installation but you need to change Formspider schema name and Middle Tier context root name. Or you may delete the current Formspider schema and middle tier before you start your installation.
  • You may still use the same Tomcat.
  • You need to export/import your application.

Ultimately it is up to you.
