    Question

    How to update WebVoyage customizations and test new features before upgrade?

    Answer

    Use the preview server, a server with test data hosted by Ex Libris to which you can connect to test new features and WebVoyage customizations for a new version before upgrading.

    • A set of skins to customize will be created in [by default] /m1/incoming/PREVOY[version]/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui
    • The preview server tomcat process may be stopped for Voyager backups. Restart it is not part of the backup script, so you may need to restart it each day when you wish to work on it.
    • Follow What is process for upgrading skin directories? for best practices in upgrading skins
