FishEye 2.9 upgrade guide
Below are some important notes on upgrading to FishEye 2.9. For details of the new features and improvements in this release, please read the FishEye 2.9 release notes.
- The JDBC driver for MySQL is no longer bundled with FishEye/Crucible - Due to license restrictions the MySQL JDBC driver cannot be bundled with FishEye/Crucible. Please download the driver from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/ and install it to the FISHEYE_INST/lib directory. For more information see Migrating to MySQL.
- The Connection pool manager has changed — FishEye and Crucible now use the BoneCP connection pool manager instead of the third-party c3p0 library previously used in FishEye/Crucible 2.8 and earlier versions. The BoneCP connection pool manager has been preconfigured in FishEye and Crucible to work out-of-the-box for most customers. Read Configuring the database connection pool for a description of the default settings and for instructions on how to override them.
- The 'Suggest Reviews' function has been removed from Crucible — From this release onwards, a Crucible user will no longer be prompted to add to an existing review when creating a review from a changeset. We have removed this functionality based on user feedback that it was confusing and not being used. This allows users who want to add changesets to an existing review to simply navigate to that review and use the 'Add Content' option. Users can also add commits to an existing review via commit messages. Removing 'Suggest Reviews' also improves performance when creating reviews, as Crucible does not have to search for and suggest reviews.
- Remote API is now permanently enabled — From this release of FishEye and Crucible onwards, the 'Remote API' setting in 'Server Settings' will not be configurable. The remote API is now always turned on, to make integration with JIRA and other services more straightforward.
