JAMWiki 0.3.6

Release Notes

JAMWiki 0.3.6 is now available for download. This release is a brown paper bag release to fix an embarrassing bug in the setup.jsp file of JAMWiki 0.3.5. In addition it includes updated translations.

See the README.txt and CHANGELOG.txt files for additional details about this release. Additional information and documentation can be found at http://jamwiki.org/. Note that users of DB/2 and Microsoft SQL Server may encounter errors as support for those databases is experimental at this time; bug reports are appreciated.

JAMWiki is distributed as a WAR file that can be deployed like any other WAR file. After restarting the web application server view the URL http://www.yourserver.com/context/ to begin the configuration process (context is the web application context root). For existing JAMWiki users see below for upgrade instructions.

IMPORTANT: While reasonably stable, the JAMWiki code is undergoing rapid development and should be considered beta software, not suitable for deployment on production systems. Feedback and bug reports are requested and can be left at http://jamwiki.org/wiki/en/Bug_Reports.

Upgrade Instructions

The process for upgrading JAMWiki is:

  1. Download the latest JAMWiki WAR file.
  2. Back up all database and/or file data prior to upgrading.
  3. Back up the jamwiki.properties file and the logging.properties file that can be found in the /WEB-INF/classes directory.
  4. If you have created any virtual wikis, back up the web.xml file that can be found in the /WEB-INF directory.
  5. Install the new JAMWiki WAR file. See your web application server's documentation for instructions. Note that, if possible, any existing JAMWiki files should be deleted prior to upgrading.
  6. Copy the files backed up in steps three and four back into their old locations, overwriting any new files. You may also need to re-copy your JDBC jar file.
  7. View any page on the Wiki. You will be redirected to the upgrade page and any required upgrade steps will be automatically performed.
  8. If the upgrade fails consult the UPGRADE.txt document for details on performing a manual upgrade.
