upgrading server and client to more recent versions

I currently have a v0.5 server with some projects in my Jazz repo. I see
that 0.6M0 is now released so I would like to stay up to date with both the
server and client. I am now running the 0.6 client but how do I upgrade my
server without starting from scratch (i.e. I don't want to lose my
projects)? Is it necessary to upgrade the server when the client is
upgraded (i.e. can I run the v0.6M0 client with v0.5 server)? Is this
addressed in the documentation on jazz.net somewhere and I just missed it?

Thanks,
Karice

Karice,

In this instance it is fairly easy to continue using your existing 0.5
database with the 0.6 Jazz server. To do this simply copy your database
(the folder named: testDB) from your 0.5 server installation folder
(.../jazz/server) to your 0.6m0 server installation.

Here are a few other general considerations in these situations.

1. Yes, you should always make sure your Jazz client and server are at
the same release level. All Jazz components have client and server side
code. Depending on the milestone changes, you could easily encounter
problems if they were not at the same level.

2. In this instance the Jazz database did not have any schema changes.
Had there been schema changes then the database would require migration
which is not currently supported (though tools exist). Schema changes
are considered very carefully before they are committed to the repository.

At this early stage users are cautioned to not become dependent on their
Jazz database content.
