Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1 Upgrade Guide

Upgrading From Java Enterprise System

You can upgrade from Java Enterprise System (Java ES) 3,4, or 5 to Enterprise Server.

ProcedureTo Upgrade From Java Enterprise System

  1. Upgrade to Java ES 5 Update1.

    For more details, see the Java ES 5 documentation on If you have already upgraded Message Queue to a version later than 4.1, upgrading to Java ES 5 Update 1 will cause Message Queue to be downgraded to version 4.1.

  2. Install Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 IFR bundle, which is available with Java ES 5 Update1 as an optional download.

    Note –

    If you have already installed a JDK version that is newer than 1.5.0_12, do not choose the Install Java 2 SDK (5.0) option during the Application Server 9.1 installation. Select the Reuse Existing Java 2 SDK option instead.

  3. Use appropriate patches from SunSolve to upgrade from Application Server 9.1 to Enterprise Server.

    See To Upgrade a Package-Based Installation of Application Server 9.1 Update 1 for patch numbers and more details.
