How to update from Magnolia 4.3.7, 4.3.6, 4.3.5, 4.3.4, 4.3.3, 4.3.2 or 4.3.1
Please refer to the general update procedure page.
How to update from an earlier version of Magnolia
Please see the release notes pages for update instructions specific to each version following the version you are updating from; if you're updating from a fictional 1.2.3 to 1.2.6, for example, please read all release notes concerning the versions you are skipping (1.2.4 and 1.2.5 in this example).
There is an unfortunate issue, specifically when deploying under JBoss *5*: you will need to remove the Xerces jar from the Magnolia webapps: if deploying using WAR files, you can remove it from the archive, or with the following Unix command
zip -d path-to-magnolia.war WEB-INF/lib/xercesImpl-2.8.1.jar. If deploying using an exploded directory, simply remove the
WEB-INF/lib/xercesImpl-2.8.1.jar file. See MAGNOLIA-2577 for technical details.
If you get exception messages such as
org.jboss.xb.binding.JBossXBException: Failed to create a new SAX parser and/or
java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.xerces.parsers.XIncludeAwareParserConfiguration, this is the issue you're hitting.
When deploying on Weblogic 10, there is a version conflict while using
commons-lang. While Weblogic-10 is distributed with
commons-lang-2.3.jar, JackRabbit and Magnolia need at least
commons-lang-2.4.jar. To resolve this issue, modify
setDomainEnv.sh of Weblogic and add
commons-lang-2.4.jar to the
PRE_CLASSPATH. Since version 2.4 of
commons-lang doesn't remove any methods, but only adds new API and fixes known bugs, there is no adverse effect from this change to the Weblogic installation.
The imaging module doesn't function properly due to conflict with a
javax.imageio plugin bundled with this version of Weblogic. There is currently no known workaround for the issue.
Please see the list of known issues in the administration section for more details.
