Note: This upgrade procedure is valid from release 12.0.0 onwards!

To upgrade a SwiftMQ Router follow these steps:

  • Install the new SwiftMQ Router (new release).

  • Stop the old SwiftMQ Router (old release).

  • Copy the complete data directory from the old to the new release.

  • Start the new SwiftMQ Router (new release).

During startup, the new SwiftMQ Router will automatically convert the routerconfig.xml and apply changes, if necessary. To accomplish this, it is important that you always use the router script of the new release!

SwiftMQ clients will transparently reconnect to the new SwiftMQ Router. If necessary, update them with the new swiftmq.jar when you have time.
