This learning path guides you through the steps required to update your existing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 32-bit install to Tools Release 9.2.3 or later and implement 64-bit processing with a 32-bit Deployment Server.
Note: This scenario only applies through EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.2.5.x. Beginning with Tools Release 9.2.6, a 32-bit Deployment Server is no longer supported. See the Implementing 64-bit Processing with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne learning path for a full 64-bit upgrade.
Before you begin the tasks included in this learning path, ensure that your EnterpriseOne install is at:
• Applications Release 9.2.
• Tools Release 9.2 or higher.
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.
Starting with Tools Release 9.2.3, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne supports 64-bit processing. To support a flexible adoption, both a 32-bit foundation and a 64-bit foundation are available for the Development Client and the Enterprise Server. Therefore, you should think of Tools Release 9.2.3 and later as having two foundations; one being 32-bit (x86) and the other being 64-bit (x64).
Tools Release 9.2.3 provides support for upgrading Enterprise Servers and Development Clients to 64-bit. Support for upgrading the Deployment Server to 64-bit is provided in a future release. Until support for a 64-bit Deployment Server is provided, 32-bit is 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 9.2.3/64-bit directly, our recommendation is a phased approach. To reduce the number of variables, we recommend upgrading to Tools Release 9.2.3 or later/32-bit first. Once validated, the upgrade to Tools Release 9.2.3 or later/64-bit can then proceed.
