I'm currently running BOS 5.8 on RHEL6 boxes under standard RHEL-provided Tomcat6 and an Oracle database.
This was a fresh install where the Bonita engine was exported from BOS 5.8 on my windows workstation and then integrated with standard Tomcat6 on the RHEL6 boxes.
The 5.8 to 5.9 migration guide ( doesn't seem to easily align with my current 5.8 installation and I'm having trouble visualizing how to migrate my 5.8 instance to 5.9. My ultimate goal is to upgrade to BOS 5.10.
I'm not opposed to removing 5.8 completely and dropping the related Oracle DBs and simply performing a fresh installation/integration of 5.9 (or ideally 5.10) since I know how to export the engine and integrate with RHEL-provided Tomcat6. I'm leaning going this route because I'm having trouble finding migration docs that match my integrated environment.
So, my questions:
1) Are there any available 5.8->5.9 migration docs that are more suitable for a BOS installation such as mine, or am I better off just performing a completely fresh install/integration?
2) Can 5.10 be installed from scratch or do I really need to install 5.9 and migrate from there?
3) The migration docs for 5.9 stated that the BOS engine now requires direct DB connections rather then hibernate connections currently handled by Tomcat. Is this true?
Huge thanks to anyone with any tips or advice!
