  • Upgrade to support the latest versions of Java and Jakarta Tomcat.

Upgrade from Xplanner

Because the database schema of XPlanner-plus builds on that of Xplanner, upgrading from Xplanner to XPlanner-plus only involves deploying and configuring the XPlanner-plus WAR file on a Tomcat server and configuring XPlanner-plus to use the Xplanner MySQL Database. XPlanner-plus will automatically upgrade the Xplanner MySQL Database if necessary.
