Upgrading from Caplin Trader 4

Note: this documentation is for a beta release of Caplin Trader 5. Features may change before the final release.

Upgrading an application to Caplin Trader 5 occurs in two steps:

  1. Migrate application modules from legacy NamespacedJS format to CommonJS format, the module format used by Node.js

    Note: if your application is based on Caplin Trader 4.4 or higher, then your code is already in CommonJS format and you can skip this stage.
  2. Migrate the application to Caplin Trader 5's workspace directory format

Caplin provide tools and support to ensure that your migration goes smoothly.

We recommend that you contact your account manager to arrange an assessment of your requirements before beginning the upgrade process.
