Upgrading to GlassFish 3.1.2

Now that GlassFish 3.1.2 has been released, you may be wondering about what your upgrade options are. As a reminder, this release is highly-compatible with previous ones and should be a target for any existing GlassFish user.


Technically-speaking version 3.1.2 is also known as 3.1.1-patch#4 and 3.1-patch#5, thus making the migration path pretty obvious for 3.1. and 3.1.1 users.

We are not forgetting users of older versions with these additional supported upgrade options :
• 2.x → 3.1.2: side-by-side install + domain upgrade
• 3.0.x → 3.1.2: side-by-side install + domain upgrade or update via update-center + domain upgrade

For a 3.1.x → 3.1.2 upgrade you can to a side-by-side install, update via update-center with no required domain upgrade (configuration is compatible with 3.1.x).

The upgrade of v2 clusters can be done with :
• side-by-side install of 3.1.2 on DAS and instance hosts
• Migrate v2 domain to 3.1.2 on DAS host + recreation of instances

In-place upgrades are not supported through the installer though. For all the details, make sure you read the dedicated "Upgrade Guide" documentation.


¿How can upgrade my domain.xml configuration from Glassfish v3.0.1 to Glassfish v3.1.2?
Thanks, Nicolas.
