in-place upgrade using the launcher leaves old jars in place

Reported by Greg Schueler | April 11th, 2012 @ 09:44 AM | in Rundeck 1.4.3 (closed)

  • Issue Type: Bug
  • Rundeck version: 1.4.2


Upgrading a rundeck server using the launcher can cause incorrect behavior, because the previous version leaves behind some rundeck jar files.


Install 1.4.2 via the launcher, and start the server.
stop the server.
Install 1.4.3 dev build in the same place and start the server.

there are now rundeck-core-1.4.2.jar and rundeck-core-1.4.3.jar in two locations, the tools/lib dir, and the server/exp/webapp/WEB-INF/lib dir.


Remove the server/exp and tools/lib dir and restart.
