Subject RE: Migration Questions
Date Fri, 09 Jan 2009 16:45:49 GMT
I had a similar experience with the docs. I was able to upgrade without exporting/importing
the data. I shutdown tomcat, backed up the entire directory tree, configured tomcat to use
the new war, started it. The only issue I had was that there was a bug where releasing caused
NPEs for projects created before the upgrade. That problem is described in
I am using war installations of continuum and archiva in a single instance of Tomcat 5.5 configured
to use the embedded derby driver. I mention this because it may affect your backup procedure.
I simply had to copy the database files.

   Note If you are upgrading from 1.1 to 1.2, no upgrade tool is needed.

but the content goes on shortly to describe the [apparently
contradictory] steps for running tools to migrate the data from 1.1 to


   +  the directory structure shown in the steps for importing data into
      don't reflect what I'm seeing in my 1.2.2 installation

         data/databases/continuum/ [and presumably

   +  the first import statement refers to the 1.1 tool, i.e.

         java -Xmx512m -jar data-management-cli-1.1-app.jar ...

Are these typos?
