jira.waltercedric.comI did update my bug tracker to the latest release of JIRA

Press release

“ The Atlassian JIRA team is delighted to present a brand new version of one of the world's favourite issue-trackers.

We have improved the UI to provide contextual awareness, improving the navigation and usability with features like activity streams and issue history. We have also added the most powerful searching capabilities ever seen in a bug tracker, called JIRA Query Language (JQL). The simple auto-complete entry system makes it incredibly easy for any user to create sophisticated queries.

We have completely overhauled the JIRA dashboards to make it quick and easy for anyone to create and add gadgets, move them around using drag & drop, and share dashboards with other team members. Using the new Plugins 2.0 architecture, we built new dashboards using OpenSocial. This means each JIRA dashboard is an OpenSocial container allowing you to consume any OpenSocial compliant gadgets from either Atlassian tools or other external sources. Conversely, JIRA gadgets can be exposed in any OpenSocial container (like iGoogle, and soon, Confluence).”

Small JIRA update How to

I’ve made a small script to automate JIRA update as it required most of the time repetitive steps

Update Script


./update.sh 3.13.3 4.0 /home/jira jiradb


update.sh script



cd $jirahome

echo Stopping old instance

echo dumping old database version
mysqldump --opt $db_name > $db_name.sql

echo Retrieving latest version

echo Copy old customization. db, port and ajp from server.xml
cp $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/conf/server.xml $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/conf/server.xml.ori
cp $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$old-standalone/conf/server.xml $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/conf/server.xml

echo Copy database settings
cp $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$old-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/entityengine.xml $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/entityengine.xml

echo Copy mysql library
cp $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$old-standalone/common/lib/mysql-*.jar $jirahome/atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/common/lib/mysql-*.jar

echo edit manually and set jira.home
echo edit ./atlassian-jira-enterprise-$new-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/jira-application.properties

Note that you will have to update the DB schema manually

  </life> I am not any more providing support for #Joomla! 1.0. Since July 22nd 2009: #Joomla 1.0 has reached end-of-life. Reasons for the Move Security. Older extensions are often built using older and potentially unsafe coding methods. Support. 1.0 has a large number of older and unsupported extensions. End-of-life. #Joomla 1.0 won't be maintained after the July end-of-life date, so it is a logical step to also stop supporting 1.0 extensions. Focus. Allow #Joomla developers to concentrate on developing …
