Upgrading to Apache Forrest 0.7

+ + + +

Introduction

+
+

+ This page describes changes to Apache Forrest that affect people who are + upgrading to the 0.7 version. + If you have other issues, then please discuss on either the + dev or + user + mailing lists. + As more experience is gained, this document will be updated. +

+

+ (If you are upgrading from a version prior to 0.6 then you may want + to see the notes for the previous + upgrade. However you should be fine with the notes from this 0.7 document.) +

+
+ + + +

New Features

+
+

+ The following list shows some of the key new features for Forrest 0.7 + (for the full list of changes, see the + change log). +

Run a clean target after upgrade

+
+

To avoid any issue with old classes being loaded, run a + 'forrest clean' in your project directory, after you + upgraded to this version. +

+
+ + + +

Java JDK 1.4 is required

General upgrade tips

+
+

+ Synchronise your project's skinconf.xml and forrest.properties files. +

+

+ Take advantage of the separation of concerns. In a new workspace, + create a fresh + 'forrest seed' site, then tweak its forrest.properties + and skinconf.xml until it reflects your old site. + When it is ready, replace your project's skinconf.xml and + forrest.properties files. + Any remaining issues would concern other aspects of your configuration, + such as site.xml and your actual content. +

+
+ + + +

New location of $FORREST_HOME

+
+

+ $FORREST_HOME is now the top-level of the distribution. + Also make sure PATH gets updated to use the new $FORREST_HOME/bin +

+
+ + + +

+
+

...as more issues are discovered/remembered :) Please send feedback + to the + mailing list.
