Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP10 Installation and Migration Guide

Migrating Applications

After migrating your server settings and data, you need to make changes to your applications so that they run on Sun Java System Web Server 6.1.

Migrating NSAPI Applications

Most NSAPI programs you used with iPlanet Web Server 4.1 will work in Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 without being recompiled. Some undocumented data structures have been moved out of nsapi.h and are no longer public. If your plugins use any of these data structures, you should re-write them to use accessor functions. The data structures that are now private are defined in nsapi_pvt.h, which is shipped with the build for informational purposes only.

Custom NSAPI plug-ins are not automatically copied to the new server directory. If you have custom plug-ins, make sure you copy your plug-ins to the upgraded path as shown in the magnus.conf of the new server.

For more information on these data structures and the new accessor functions, see the Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP10 NSAPI Programmer’s Guide.

Server-side Java Applets (HttpApplets)

Server-side Java applets (HttpApplets) are not supported. Instead use Java servlets. You will need to rewrite your server-side Java applets as servlets and reinstall them.
