This section discusses considerations that impact the upgrade procedure for Web Proxy Server, followed by a description of the procedure itself.
The upgrade of Web Proxy Server software to Java ES Release 5U1 takes into account the following considerations:
All Web Proxy Server instances corresponding to the same installed Web Proxy Server image are upgraded at the same time. All such instances should be shut down when patches are being applied to the installed image.
The Release 5U1 Web Proxy Server upgrade patches for Windows are shown in the following table:
Web Proxy Server core
Web Proxy Server localization
The localized patch files are delivered within the core patch.
The procedure documented below applies to Web Proxy Server instances residing locally on the computer where the upgrade is taking place.
Log in as administrator.
Shut down the Release 5 Web Proxy Server instances and the administration server.
Make sure you have upgraded any Java ES components upon which Web Proxy Server has hard upgrade dependencies (see Upgrade Web Proxy Server Dependencies.
Obtain the required Web Proxy Server Release 5U1 upgrade patches, based on Table 11–3.
To obtain the patch, see Accessing Java ES Patches. Patches can be downloaded to \workingDirectory.
Install the patch.
Installation is generally performed by running patch-id.exe, however, be sure to consult the README.patch-id file in the patch directory for installation instructions.
If you are prompted to restart the system, select No. Wait till the patch installation process is completed and then restart and re-login as the same user to complete the patch installation.
Verify the patch log file.
The log file is found at: %TEMP%\SUNJAVAES_<patch-id>.log
Verify the patch installation with the utility ListJavaESPatches.exe.
Run ListJavaESPatches.exe and check that the output includes the patch id of the patch that you have installed in Step 5. For more information, see Identifying Installed Java ES Patches.
Start the Release 5U1 Web Proxy Server instances and the administration server.
