Upgrading Custom Static Sessions

When terminal sessions are created or modified using the Session Manager, the protected sessions are upgraded during the upgrade procedures when using an automated installer or during startup (when the default web server is started) after a manual installation.

Because Reflection for the Web and Management and Security Server are separate products in version 12.3, the custom static session pages may need to be manually updated to load the Reflection for the Web applet from its new installation location. This update may require modifying applet attributes and parameters such as codebase, archive, and cache_archive.

If any of these conditions exist, follow the steps to upgrade static sessions.

  • The sessions were not saved using Session Manager.

  • The HTML in your session(s) was manually modified.

  • You want to upgrade the static sessions for any reason.

NOTE:If you have keyboard map files that are not contained within a configuration file, then you must upgrade these files before you upgrade the sessions.

To upgrade static sessions:

  1. Open a Command Prompt, and change directories to find the location below. For Windows, the location is:

    [installation path]\apache-tomcat\webapps\rweb\WEB-INF\lib

  2. On the same command line, on one continuous line, enter the appropriate syntax (displayed below) to upgrade your specified configuration files:

    • Language. On the command line, include the language you want to use: German (de), English (en), or French (fr).

    • Name of relative or absolute directory or file that contains the configuration files. (You must be able to access this file or directory from the machine where you are upgrading.)

    • Enter this command as one continuous line:

      java -classpath RWebServlet.jar com.wrq.util.upgrade.ConfigUpgrade -locale <de|en|fr> <file name|directory>

Example. To upgrade the configuration files in the session directory for use with the English version, follow these steps.

  1. In the Command Prompt, change directories to arrive at this location in Windows:

    C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\MSS\server\web\webapps\rweb-client\WEB-INF\lib

  2. Enter the following command on a single line:

    java -classpath RWebServlet.jar com.wrq.util.upgrade.ConfigUpgrade -locale en "C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\MSS\apache-tomcat\webapps\rweb\session"
