    Is there an easy way to upgrade wildfly from 8.0.0.Final to 8.1.0CR1?

    Richard Yang Apprentice

      My 8.0.0.Final has some extra modules and I have a downgraded jsf module (because of the primefaces version).

      I wonder if I can upgrade to 8.1.CR without reinstalling as new server?

      Does patching works? If so, how do I do that?

       

      Thanks.

          There is no patch for going from 8.0.0 --> 8.1.0.CR1 available for now.

          In any case patch would not apply if you have your installation heavily modified.

           

          Where did you put your custom modules?

          I recommend putting them in extra directory outside of WildFly itself, as this way you can easily upgrade server without worrying about your extra modules.

           

          all you need to do is to set JBOSS_MODULE_PATH env variable to point to something like this $JBOSS_HOME/modules:/opt/my/modules

          this would put your /opt/my/modules to extra module path.

           

          also primefaces 4 should work fine with JSF 2.2 that is in WildFly8
