This page lists the web client migration steps required to move from 1.2 to 1.3.
Attribute Name Changes
For consistency several attribute names have changed in the config files, find and replace the following attribute names in all web-client-config-*.xml files and any custom files you have created in your application.
- displayLabel => display-label
- displayLabelId => display-label-id
- descriptionMsgId => description-id
- readOnly => read-only
- showInEditMode => show-in-edit-mode
Custom content types used to be defined in a config section named 'Custom Content Types'. The list of custom content types to display is now configured within the context of the functionality using it. The list of custom types to show when creating content is therefore now defined in a config section called 'Content Wizards'. The list of types shown in the 'specialise-type' action in the create rule wizard can now be found under the <specialise-types> element in the 'Action Wizards' config section.
Likewise, custom space types shown in the UI are also configured in the context they are used. The list from the old config section called 'Custom Folder Types' can now be found in the config section named 'Space Wizards'.
The following dialogs have been moved to the new dialog framework, meaning there is an impact on both the JSPs and managed beans involved in any customisation you may have.
