Subject [jira] Created: (JS2-463) Database Upgrade scripts
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2006 15:33:16 GMT
Database Upgrade scripts

         Key: JS2-463
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-463
     Project: Jetspeed 2
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Deployment, Installer, Project Build  
    Versions: 2.1-dev, 2.0-FINAL    
    Reporter: Scott T Weaver
    Priority: Critical

Moving to the release version of Jetspeed 2, I have run into enough database changes to make
upgrade fairly painful.

1.  The format of the PREFS_PROPERTY_VALUE was completely altered requiring manual migration
of existing data from the old table format to the new (see the attached .sql file for example
script to move existing prefs).

2.  The page statics system was added, not a big deal, but still was suprise and required
digging into the logs to locate the issue.

The issue is  that on existing build systems I cannot simply wipe/recreate the database like
I do on a local dev system and now that we have a release and will try to release incremental
builds we should really focus on migration and upgrade scripts for the database.
