- Customers installing or upgrading to Semarchy xDM version 5.3.4 or above and using the Tomcat application server.
Summary & Application
Semarchy xDM version 5.3.4 introduces a breaking change for users upgrading from prior versions: in order to avoid possible conflicts with other libraries,
org.glassfish.javax.json libraries that were traditionally included in previous releases are not shipped with xDM anymore, starting from version 5.3.4.
In scenarios where customers upgrade to version 5.3.4, yet neglect to copy required libraries as instructed, errors may occur:
This syntax may appear in the PDE log:
1. Copy the following libraries from the
/mdm-server/additional-libraries/ folder of the xDM Server Installation to the
<tomcat>/lib/ of your Tomcat application server:
2. Additionally, if Tomcat is running with JDK 11, copy the following libraries (same source and destination folders):
# Libraries for Tomcat on JDK 11 com.sun.activation.jakarta.activation_*.jar com.sun.istack.commons-runtime_*.jar com.sun.xml.fastinfoset.FastInfoset_*.jar jakarta.jws-api_*.jar jakarta.xml.bind-api_*.jar jakarta.xml.soap-api_*.jar org.apache.servicemix.specs.jaxws-api-*.jar org.glassfish.jaxb.runtime_*.jar org.glassfish.jaxb.txw2_*.jar org.jvnet.staxex.stax-ex_*.jar
