    Itamar,

    Since the tool is going through this beta process, when will the CP's come out for IDS 14.2 and 14.3 components which include support for the web apps on the updated wildfly/JBoss versions?

    Hi Enrique

    Our goal is to release them at the time of the GA for the tool.

    Depending on the type of feedback we will get, we are aiming on an end of September release date but again, this may change.

    Hope this helps

    Hi @Gursharan Virdi​​

    You will not be able to install our products on a fresh JBOSS 7.2 as the installers were not built to that purpose.

    You will have to install the solution on a JBOSS 6.4 and than run the migration tool.

    Future releases of the products will have an OOTB support with the installers.

    Thanks

    Thank you Itamar for your response. What's the ETA for future releases, that will support OOTB.

    I also have questions regarding the upgrade from 6.4 to 7.2

    1.  Please confirm if the layer_7.sh script was replaced with the migration tool. (jboss-server-migration.sh?)

    2. Is there any similar migration document released for portal servers.


    Regards

    Hi @Gursharan Virdi

    The best ETA I can provide ​is around mid next year.

    In regards to to the script question, you will need both our scripts as well as the official migration utility

    thanks
