Upgrading from a Previous Version

If you are currently using a previous version of GigaSpaces or GigaSpaces, contact support@gigaspaces.com for information on how to upgrade to the most recent version.

As a best practice, when upgrading to the latest version, unzip the downloaded software package and port the necessary changes from your previous environment into your new environment. It is recommended to use the new distribution as-is.

Backwards Compatibility

This version of the GigaSpaces Platform is backwards compatible to GigaSpaces version 12.x (most APIs and client-server). For more information about GigaSpaces' backwards compatibility policy, refer to the Product Life Cycle and End-of-Life Policy page.

A change operation from an older version of the client is not supported.

For information about product changes that may affect your upgrade process, refer to the sections on Upgrading from a Previous Version for the following releases: 12.3, 12.2, 12.1, and 12.0.

Changes to XAP.NET Package

Due to recent changes in the available Java distributions, Java is no longer packaged with XAP.NET. By default, if you have Java already installed on the host machine then XAP.NET will use it (via the JAVA_HOME environment variable). For more information, see the JVM Configuration topic of the XAP.NET section.
