    Migration from JBP 2.6.6 to JBP 2.7.2 ...

    Sourav Mazumder Newbie

      Hi Guys,

      We are planning to migrate couple of our applications from JSR 168 (JBP 2.6.6 container) to JSR 286 (JBP 2.7.2 container).

      If anyone has a list of typical issues faced/to be watched for that would be really helpful.

      Any other pointer in this regard also would be highly appreciated.

      Regards,
      Sourav

          There is one compatibility issue and we talk about that in chapter 4 of 2.7.2 reference guide regarding use of JBossActionRequest

          In terms spec, there are few things to be aware of:

          - URL is XML escaped by default. This behavior can be changed .
          - Some changes in when you have multiple values for a single paramater.
          and so on..

          For more, you would have to read the spec. It's lots of fun. ;)

            Hi Prabhat,

            I've checked the reference guide you have mentioned.

            From there what I could gather is unless any of my existing JSR 168 portlets use JBossActionRequest, all those JSR 168 portlets would run as is in 2.7.2.

            I just wanted to confirm this understanding. Please note that I don't want the JSR 286 features available in my existing JSR 168 portlets.

            Regards,

              Hy,

              I'm posing here, because it matches my Topic.
              I'm currently trying to switch from JBP 2.6.6 to 2.7.2. I compared the two versions and moved the changes i made (like adding Themes) to the new XML Files.

              After deployment, i get several ClassNotFound Exceptions, i can't understand.

              No ClassLoaders found for: org.jboss.hibernate.jbc.cacheprovider.OptimisticJBCCache$NonLockingDataVersion

              No ClassLoaders found for: org.apache.jackrabbit.core.query.HTMLTextFilter

              I searched in the JARs provided with 2.7.2 and found the "missing" org.jboss.hibernate.jbc.. Cache in the hibernate-jbc-cacheprovider.jar File. I don't understand why it is not loaded.

              I am using JBoss 4.2.1.GA and the HA Version of JBP 2.6.6 / JBP 2.7.2.

              Thanks so far

              Regards

                Hy out there,

                Just wanted to reply that I found the Problem. It wasn't a problem with JBP 2.7.2. I had another Server with JBP 2.6.6 running in the same Subnet, so the Caches of the Servers wanted to synchronise each other. And the Exceptions i saw were not from JBP 2.7.2, they were from the other Server which (actualy logical) didn't found the classes to load.

                Regards
