Upgrading from Crowd 2.0 to Crowd 2.1 Beta 4 should be straightforward. Please follow the Crowd upgrade guide.
Custom Application Connectors
If you are using a custom application connector:
- You can connect a Crowd 2.0.7 client to the Crowd 2.1 server, because the SOAP API is fully backward-compatible.
- If possible, we recommend that you upgrade the client to version 2.1. This will require a recompilation of the application, because some of the classes have moved into different packages within the client JAR.
Crowd Now Runs in the Background
We have changed the Crowd startup scripts (
start_crowd.sh) to run Crowd in the background. We have also added new scripts to stop Crowd:
Note that on OS X and Linux, you can no longer use Ctrl-C to stop the Crowd server – use the
stop_crowd.sh script instead. On Windows a second command window pops up when you start Crowd, and you can use Ctrl-C in that window to stop Crowd.
