Issue/Introduction

We would like to upgrade Tomcat version for Jaspersoft, but keep the existing install. How can we do that?

Environment

Release : Any

Component : CLARITY JASPERSOFT

Resolution

  1. Stop Jaspersoft service
  2. Download and install new Tomcat in a separate folder
  3. Copy and move the .jaspersoft folder and /reportservice folder from $old_tomcat to the same location for $new_tomcat
  4. In .jaspersoft folder open the default_master.properties with text editor
  5. Set the appServerDir to the correct path (mind the double slashes //). Save
  6. Copy the database driver for the vendor you're using from $old_tomcat/lib to $new_tomcat/lib (jar file names may vary):
    • mssql-jdbc-8.2.1.jre11.jar
    • ojdbc8-19.8.0.0.0.jar
    • postgresql-42.2.6.jar

  7. Start Tomcat again
