Upgrade to 3.5

Recommended Posts

We purchased Jet Professional and are currently running 3.15-mp3.

What are the compelling reasons to upgrade and what is the upgrade cost?

I have another question regarding upgrade.

Right now we have Jet 3.15 mp2.  We use JDK1.4.2_01 as JRE.

Our install includes full "JET RT" and "JRE" using JetPackII's thirdparty

option with single root.

Now, we assume that if we wanna upgrade a customer, we can

compile a new jar, and simply copy the exe-file to the customer.

Now, if we upgrade to JET 3.5, I assume that we need to upgrade

the customers "JET RT" directory also.  Is this correct, or can this

be avoided, if we stick to the same JRE?

Regards,

MrMis .

The main reasons to upgrade are:

  • New features, the major being support for Endorsed Standards Override and the xjava launcher.
  • Application performance improvement (just a few percent, though some of our tests has speeded up by 20%). Actually this is a side effect of changes aimed at compatibility, not  performance. ;)
  • Support for future J2SE microversions (through Maintenance Packs)

The upgrade cost to users of v3.15 Pro is $375. If you have an active Maintenance Contract (which you could have purchased at just $150), or if the date of your order for v3.15 is November 25, 2003 or later, you qualify for a free upgrade.

Your assumption is correct - you have to update the JET RT directory.
