Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Update 1 Upgrade Guide for Microsoft Windows

Release 5 Web Proxy Server Upgrade

This section describes how to perform an upgrade of Web Proxy Server from Java ES 5 to Java ES 5 Update 1. This section covers the following topics:

Pre-Upgrade Tasks

Before you upgrade Web Proxy Server, perform the tasks described below.

Verify Current Version Information

Verify the current version of Web Proxy Server before you upgrade.

ProcedureTo Verify Current Version Information

  1. Examine the subcomponent error log at:


    The Web Proxy Server version information is as follows.

    Release 5U1

    Sun Java System Web Proxy Server 4.0.5 (Build Date)

    Release 5

    Sun Java System Web Proxy Server 4.0.4 (Build Date)

Upgrade Web Proxy Server Dependencies

It is generally recommended that all Java ES components on a computer system (and in a computing environment) be upgraded to Release 5U1. However, the upgrade of Web Proxy Server to Release 5U1 only requires that Windows Installer patch (126910–02) is already applied.

Backing Up Web Proxy Server Data

The Web Proxy Server upgrade to Release 5U1 does not modify the Release 5 configuration data. There is no need to back up current data.

Upgrading Release 5 Web Proxy Server

This section discusses considerations that impact the upgrade procedure for Web Proxy Server, followed by a description of the procedure itself.

Upgrade Considerations

The upgrade of Web Proxy Server software to Java ES Release 5U1 takes into account the following considerations:

Table 11–3 Patches1 to Upgrade Web Proxy Server on Windows


Patch ID [Patch revision numbers are the minimum required for upgrade to Release 5U1. If newer revisions become available, use the newer ones instead of those shown in the table.]

Web Proxy Server core 


Web Proxy Server localization 

The localized patch files are delivered within the core patch. 

Upgrade Procedure

The procedure documented below applies to Web Proxy Server instances residing locally on the computer where the upgrade is taking place.

ProcedureTo Upgrade Web Proxy Server to Java ES 5U1

  1. Log in as administrator.

  2. Shut down the Release 5 Web Proxy Server instances and the administration server.

    C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaES5\webproxyserver\proxy-admserv\stopsockd.bat

    C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaES5\webproxyserver\proxy-server1\stopsvr.bat

    C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaES5\webproxyserver\proxy-server1\stopsockd.bat

  3. Make sure you have upgraded any Java ES components upon which Web Proxy Server has hard upgrade dependencies (see Upgrade Web Proxy Server Dependencies.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    Note –

    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.

  6. Verify the patch log file.

    The log file is found at: %TEMP%\SUNJAVAES_<patch-id>.log

  7. 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.

  8. Start the Release 5U1 Web Proxy Server instances and the administration server.

    C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaES5\webproxyserver\proxy-admserv\startsvr.bat

    C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaES5\webproxyserver\proxy-server1\startsvr.bat

    C:\Program Files\Sun\JavaES5\webproxyserver\proxy-server1\startsockd.bat
