Version update from 5.2.0 to 6.2.1 or above
Posted on June 15, 2017 at 8:01am
we are planning to update our current jasper version 5.2.0 to 6.2.1 or above. I have few questions in mind:
- what are the specification required to upgrade the current version to 6.2.1 ?
- this is the production server for commercial use so what are the risks & any other things to be prepare for this update ?
- anything else we need to aware of this change ?
thanks in advance

The major change are the security framework change, REST API change, and Dashboard change. Also, if you have a custom theme, it may not work.
Recommend that you do a version up test on a test environment first to make sure everything works OK.

..one last question
right now we are using iReport 5.2 for report creation so is this necessary to update it also i? If yes then what are the things we need to take care of to avoid any report loss ?
