Upgrading from a Previous 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.
This version of the InsightEdge Platform is backwards compatible to XAP version 12.x (APIs and client-server). For more information about GigaSpaces' backwards compatibility policy, refer to the Product Life Cycle and End-of-Life Policy page.
GigaSpaces Command Line Interface (CLI)
The scripts that run the command line interface (new and legacy) have been unified, and are now in a single script called "gs". This script starts the latest CLI by default (version 2). For more information, refer to Upgrading the CLI.
Up to and including release 14.2, a dedicated script was used to install XAP Maven artifacts to a local Maven repository (installmavenrep), along with an additional script for InsightEdge. These scripts have been removed as of release 14.5, and the functionality is now provided by the new
gs install maven command in the CLI. For more information, refer to Maven Artifacts.
Changes to XAP.NET Package
Due to 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.
