Upgrading to 4.5+

Java 11

Since version 4.5, we target java 11 to take advantage of new features. You need to install a java 11 version and use that one for Smart Flows. You can either use Adopt OpenJDK  or Oracle OpenJDK . After installation of the jdk, you need to update the java executable in the <executable> element in the smartflows-server.xml configuration file, for instance when using the Adopt Open JDK:

	<name>Xpertdoc Smart Flows Server</name>
	<description>Xpertdoc Smart Flows Server</description>

	<executable>C:\Program Files\AdoptOpenJDK\jdk-\bin\java.exe</executable>

If you are still using an incompatible jdk, you will see something like this in smartflows-server.err.log:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/xperido/project/XperiDoProjectApplication has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 55.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0

DB Migration

With the release of 4.4.2, db migration 69  was rolled out while db migration 68  was not yet available. Therefore, before starting an upgrade, you need to enable out of order db migrations by settings the application property spring.flyway.out-of-order:


If this is not done, you will see an error similar to this one:

Caused by: org.flywaydb.core.api.FlywayException: Validate failed: Detected resolved migration not applied to database: 68
	at org.flywaydb.core.Flyway.doValidate(
	at org.flywaydb.core.Flyway.access$100(
