This learning path guides you through the steps required to update your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools release to release 9.2.4 or later with 64-bit processing.
Before you begin the tasks included in this learning path, ensure that your EnterpriseOne install is at:
Verify that a full package has been built for the pathcodes implementing 64-bit. If this is a new environment or your environment is on a Tools Release prior to 9.2.1, you need to:
We recommend that you migrate one path code to 64-bit ensuring that your business functions migrate properly. This process is described in more detail in the multi-foundation content included in this learning path.
Specification merge for UBEs, business views, and table indexes is deprecated with the 64-bit Deployment Server update. Compare tools are available for these objects. Please see the Software Updates guide for more information regarding the compare tools.
To support a flexible adoption, both a 32-bit foundation and a 64-bit foundation are available for the Deployment Server, Development Clients, and Enterprise Servers. Therefore, you should think of Tools Release 9.2.4 and later as having two foundations; one being 32-bit (x86) and the other being 64-bit (x64).
Tools Release 9.2.4 provides support for upgrading Deployment Server, Enterprise Servers and Development Clients to 64-bit. If any path code or server remains at 32-bit, the source of truth for the tools release and all development should be done from a 32-bit Development Client. A conversion tool from 32-bit to 64-bit is provided, but the ability to reverse engineer from 64-bit back to 32-bit is not supported.
If you are using a 32-bit development client or a 64-bit development client, business function development is always performed in 32-bit. When you check-in or build through Busbuild the 32-bit version is run through the 64-bit conversion and both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions are written to the repository. Any subsequent par that is generated via Configuration Assistant will contain both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions and can be deployed to either a 32-bit or 64-bit path code.
While it is possible to upgrade to Tools Release 9.2.4/64-bit directly, our recommendation is a phased approach. To reduce the number of variables, we recommend upgrading to Tools Release 9.2.4 or later/32-bit first. Once validated, the upgrade to Tools Release 9.2.4 or later/64-bit can then proceed.
JD Edwards compare and merge tools enable you to compare two versions of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne objects and non-code objects, such as versions, UDCs, data dictionary items. Tools Release 9.2.4 and later include a compare tool for RDA and merge tools for business views and tables. If you have made custom modifications to business views, forms, or event rules, the compare and merge tools can help you retrofit your changes or verify that they were carried forward to a new release. Furthermore, you can use these tools anytime you want to compare items between two environments.
