The jBPM gang are planning to release version 4.4 next Monday. Most issues reported against this version are done, Hudson looks better than ever and, importantly, it has been almost six months since the previous delivery.
Please help us test this new release before it hits the streets. The snapshot of the distribution is available from the JBoss snapshots repository. The existing user guide provides installation instructions.
Should you have any comments, questions or concerns, you are most welcome to voice them in this forum.
Now, I have jbpm 4.3 (with apache-tomcat-6.0.24).
Which is the correct steps for migrate to 4.4 ? I need do a migration because I had process instances running...
(I read the jBPM User Guide and I don't understand steps that I should do... )
I should run a upgrade.jbpm.schema?? I don't see upgrade-4.3-to-4.4 folder... then I supose that jBPM 4.4 DB schema is the same that 4.3...
There are no database changes between 4.3 and 4.4; the new version is intended to be a drop-in replacement. As with every migration process, I would not suggest to attempt it on the live data (this goes without saying, I know). Note that the snapshot is stable from a quality engineering perspective, but we want the community to check it out for unforeseen issues.
Today I notice that the xsd schema of jbpm-4.4 was changed to http://jbpm.org/jpdl/4.4. It didn't like previous releasing, as http://jbpm.org/4.0/jpdl, http://jbpm.org/4.2/jpdl, http://jbpm.org/4.3/jpdl.
Is there any reason for doing that? I think it will be a little confusing for people to upgrade from previous version to jbpm-4.4.
Alejandro, could you please publish latest snapshot version of 4.4 to maven repository? There are quite few fixes that could be tested by community users that does not have possibility to build it themselves.
Done, deployed new snapshot today.
