Subject RE: binary distribution - how to upgrade ?
Date Thu, 20 Jun 2013 16:54:10 GMT
Hi Bernd,

I think, that the best solution is to 'install' Tomcat manually from binaries available on
Tomcat project.
I do not use repositories on my CentOS/Debian machines, because Tomcat versions available
there are a bit outdated (I need 7.X while in official repos you will not find such).
In addition, read this before upgrade: .

Subject: binary distribution - how to upgrade ?


i'm fairly new to tomcat. We have a SLES 10 SP4 64bit host, running Tomcat 5.5, which was
provided as a rpm from the distributor.
Our developers need now a more current version, 6 or prefered 7.
I didn't find rpm's for these versions for my OS. So i have to install the binary version
from the tomcat web page.

I read that patches concerning security vulnerabilities are not provided for the binary version.
My question: what do i have to do if i read that version x.x has a security vulnerability
which is closed by version x.y ?
Just install the new version over the old one ? Uninstalling the old one before ? What is
about my webapps ? Are they gone with the installation of the new version ?

Thanks in advance.
