Upgrading to v4


For the Enterprise Edition, v4 requires re-activation with a new license, so users with an active Enterprise Software Subscription are required to request for a new license.

As with any upgrade, it is strongly recommended that you test the upgrade on a development or test environment first. Please perform backup of your files and perform the necessary tests after the upgrade.

  1. Depending on platform, download either the v4 Windows ZIP or Linux GZIP bundle
  2. Extract the bundle, and locate the jw.war and jwdesigner.war files in apache-tomcat-x.x.x/webapps folder.
  3. Backup the existing v3 installation data (Please refer to Joget Workflow Deployment Best Practices)
  4. Stop Tomcat
  5. Delete the existing jw and jwdesigner directories in the current Tomcat webapps directory.
  6. Copy the new v4's jw.war and jwdesigner.war files in the Tomcat webapps directory.
  7. Delete the current Tomcat work directory work/Catalina/localhost directory
  8. Start Tomcat

Running v4 alongside with v3

It is possible to test run v4 in conjunction with v3. To do this:

  1. Rename the new jw.war to jw4.war and copy it to the Apache Tomcat webapps directory "[Joget v3 Installation Directory]/apache-tomcat-6.0.18/webapps".
  2. Once the war file has finished deploying, you can then access v4 at http://localhost:8080/jw4
