The oldest version, which can be upgraded to Intrexx 19.03, is Intrexx 7.
Upgrade to Intrexx 19.03
With Intrexx 19.03, you receive a completely revised version of the low-code
platform, Intrexx. We have taken extensive measures to make your portals
even safer, such as a mandatory switch to HTTPS, password encryption with
the PBKDF2 process and much more. We have simplified the architecture of web
connectors in relation to security and future updates (load balancing,
TLS offloading, flexibility).
The complete overhaul of the business logic with Intrexx 19.03 offers a whole
range of new benefits when designing applications.
Many adjustments had to be made to the existing APIs and interfaces to implement
all of these changes. We make every effort to stay as backwards compatible
as possible but we cannot always guarantee that everything can be migrated
as there was not an API for these in the past.
Therefore, we recommend that you plan your upgrade carefully and to perform
it in a separate test environment first. Plan in a timeframe for any potential
adjustments. Your Intrexx Partner is happy to support you here.
This section will describe how you can upgrade Intrexx, meaning change the Intrexx version.
In particular, it will look at upgrading from 18.03 to 19.03.
You need to make key changes to the Intrexx configuration when performing this upgrade.
This particularly relates to the "embedded Tomcat" that is an integral part of Intrexx
from Version 19.03 onwards.
There are two different approaches to this upgrade.
Upgrade an existing installation
You can install Intrexx 19.03 in a directory where a previous version has already been installed.
A key advantage of this approach is that all existing configurations from the previous
Intrexx version are kept.
You can install Intrexx 19.03 in a new directory. This approach starts just like a
new installation. After the installation, you need to transfer data from the
previous version to Intrexx 19.03.
