Upgrade the Deployment Framework

Here's how to upgrade the Caplin Deployment Framework to a newer version.

These instructions assume that you keep your master copy of the Deployment Framework under source control (see How Can I... Add the Deployment Framework to source control).

Follow the steps below:

  1. Unpack the new version of the Deployment Framework.
  2. Put all the unpacked files, except those in the global_config directory,  into the source controlled Deployment Framework.

    The release note will detail any files that have been added to the Deployment Framework; add these files to source control. It will also detail any files that have been removed from the Framework; remove them from source control.

    Tip: With some source control systems you may need to “check out” the files to make them writeable before new versions can be copied over them.
  3. The release note will list any changes to the contents of files in the Framework's global_config directory. Merge these changes into the corresponding files in the global_config directory within source control.

  4. Using the appropriate source control commands, you can can now retrieve the new version of the Deployment Framework for local use - see How can I ... Retrieve the Deployment Framework from source control.

  5. If the contents of any of the files in the global_config directory have changed, you must merge these changes into the corresponding files in the local Framework's global_config directory.
