Service Registry dependencies on other Java ES components can impact the procedure for upgrading and reconfiguring Service Registry software. Changes in Service Registry interfaces or functions, for example, could require upgraded version of components upon which Service Registry depends. The need to upgrade such components depends upon the specific upgrade path.
Service Registry has dependencies on the following Java ES components:
Shared Components. Service Registry has dependencies on specific Java ES shared components, as listed in Table 1–8.
Application Server. Service Registry depends on Application Server to provide a container for the Service Registry application and, in Release 5 and 5U1, to manage connections to the networked registry and repository database.
Java DB. Service Registry has a mandatory dependency on Java DB as the default database for storing services and the meta data describing them.
