PPM 9.20 Upgrade: When to set JAVA_HOME

Hello,

 

We are upgrading from PPM 8.01 to 9.20 and we are on the intermediate version 9.14 with minimal issues.

 

As a prerequisite for 9.20, we need to get JDK version 1.7.0_3 or later and set it as the JAVA_HOME.

When we did it and tried starting the 9.14 services, we got 'itg.war' deploy failed and the services does not start.

 

Question is how do we handle setting the JAVA_HOME with a different version of JDK which fails PPM 9.14 but is a prerequisite for 9.20 upgrade?

 

My best guess is to Stop the PPM services on 9.14, set the JAVA_HOME with new JDK, proceed with upgrade; assuming the upgrade will not be affected.

Warm Regards,

Hi,

This is the way to do it.

Make sure that 9.14 starts properly, then stop it, switch to jdk 1.7 and start the upgrade.

Cheers

Yes, setting the JAVA_HOME with JDK 1.7.0_3 just before the upgrade worked.

 

Thank you!

Re: PPM 9.20 Upgrade: When to set JAVA_HOME

I have a question...

I am going to be upgrading from 9.14 --> 9.2x --> 9.3 in the next few months...

I currently do not set JAVA_HOME on any users' machines and when I play with that on my own pc, it doesnt seem to have any impact on the way 9.14 starts or runs.

Does that change for 9.2x and above?  Again, I am talking about on a users' machine vs. where the application instance is installed.

 

Thanks,

Steve
