Chapter 1. Upgrading your broker

1.1. About upgrades

Red Hat releases new versions of AMQ Broker to the Customer Portal. Update your brokers to the newest version to ensure that you have the latest enhancements and fixes. In general, Red Hat releases a new version of AMQ Broker in one of three ways:

Major Release
A major upgrade or migration is required when an application is transitioned from one major release to the next, for example, from AMQ Broker 6 to AMQ Broker 7. This type of upgrade is not addressed in this guide. For instructions on how to upgrade from previous releases of AMQ Broker, see Migrating to Red Hat AMQ 7.
Minor Release
AMQ Broker periodically provides minor releases, which are updates that include new features, as well as bug and security fixes. If you plan to upgrade from one AMQ Broker minor release to another, for example, from AMQ Broker 7.0 to AMQ Broker 7.1, code changes should not be required for applications that do not use private, unsupported, or tech preview components.
Micro Release
AMQ Broker also periodically provides micro releases that contain minor enhancements and fixes. Micro releases increment the minor release version by the last digit, for example from 7.0.1 to 7.0.2. A micro release should not require code changes, however, some releases may require configuration changes.

1.2. Upgrading older 7.x versions

1.2.1. Upgrading a broker instance from 7.0.x to 7.0.y

The procedure for upgrading AMQ Broker from one version of 7.0 to another is similar to the one for installation: you download an archive from the Customer Portal and then extract it.

The following subsections describe how to upgrade a 7.0.x broker for different operating systems.

1.2.1.1. Upgrading from 7.0.x to 7.0.y on Linux

The name of the archive that you download could differ from what is used in the following examples.

Prerequisites

  • Before upgrading AMQ Broker, review the release notes for the target release.

    The release notes describe important enhancements, known issues, and changes to behavior in the target release.

    For more information, see the AMQ Broker 7.0 Release Notes.

Procedure

  1. Download the desired archive from the Red Hat Customer Portal by following the instructions provided in Downloading the AMQ Broker archive.
  2. Change the owner of the archive to the same user that owns the AMQ Broker installation to be upgraded.

    sudo chown amq-broker:amq-broker jboss-amq-7.x.x.redhat-1.zip
  3. Move the archive to the directory created during the original installation of AMQ Broker. In the following example, the directory /opt/redhat is used.

    sudo mv jboss-amq-7.x.x.redhat-1.zip /opt/redhat
  4. As the directory owner, extract the contents of the compressed archive. The archive is kept in a compressed format. In the following example, the user amq-broker extracts the archive by using the unzip command.

    su - amq-broker
    cd /opt/redhat
    unzip jboss-amq-7.x.x.redhat-1.zip
  5. Stop the broker if it is running.

    BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/bin/artemis stop
  6. Back up the instance directory of the broker by copying it to the home directory of the current user.

    cp -r BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR ~/
  7. (Optional) Note the current version of the broker. After the broker stops, a line similar to the one below is displayed at the end of its log file, which can be found at BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/log/artemis.log.

    INFO  [org.apache.activemq.artemis.core.server] AMQ221002: Apache ActiveMQ Artemis Message Broker version 2.0.0.amq-700005-redhat-1 [4782d50d-47a2-11e7-a160-9801a793ea45] stopped, uptime 28 minutes
  8. Edit the BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/etc/artemis.profile configuration file to set the ARTEMIS_HOME property to the new directory created when the archive was extracted.

    ARTEMIS_HOME='/opt/redhat/jboss-amq-7.x.x-redhat-1'
  9. Start the upgraded broker.

    BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/bin/artemis run
  10. (Optional) Confirm that the broker is running and that the version has changed. After starting the broker, open the log file BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/log/artemis.log and find two lines similar to the ones below. Note the new version number that appears in the log after the broker is live.

1.2.4. Upgrading a broker instance from 7.2.x to 7.3.0

The following subsections describe how to upgrade a 7.2.x broker instance to 7.3.0 for different operating systems.

1.2.4.1. Resolve exception due to deprecated dispatch console

Starting in version 7.3.0, AMQ Broker no longer ships with the Hawtio dispatch console plugin dispatch-hawtio-console.war. Previously, the dispatch console was used to manage AMQ Interconnect. However, AMQ Interconnect now uses its own, standalone web console. This change affects the upgrade procedures in the sections that follow.

If you take no further action before upgrading your broker instance to 7.3.0, the upgrade process produces an exception that looks like the following:

2019-04-11 18:00:41,334 WARN  [org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext] Failed startup of context o.e.j.w.WebAppContext@1ef3efa8{/dispatch-hawtio-console,null,null}{/opt/amqbroker/amq-broker-7.3.0/web/dispatch-hawtio-console.war}: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /opt/amqbroker/amq-broker-7.3.0/web/dispatch-hawtio-console.war.

You can safely ignore the preceding exception without affecting the success of your upgrade.

However, if you would prefer not to see this exception during your upgrade, you must first remove a reference to the Hawtio dispatch console plugin in the bootstrap.xml file of your existing broker instance. The bootstrap.xml file is in the {instance_directory}/etc/ directory of your broker instance. The following example shows some of the contents of the bootstrap.xml file for a AMQ Broker 7.2.4 instance:

<broker xmlns="http://activemq.org/schema">
....
   <!-- The web server is only bound to localhost by default -->
   <web bind="http://localhost:8161" path="web">
       <app url="redhat-branding" war="redhat-branding.war"/>
       <app url="artemis-plugin" war="artemis-plugin.war"/>
       <app url="dispatch-hawtio-console" war="dispatch-hawtio-console.war"/>
       <app url="console" war="console.war"/>
   </web>
</broker>

To avoid an exception when upgrading AMQ Broker to version 7.3.0, delete the line <app url="dispatch-hawtio-console" war="dispatch-hawtio-console.war"/>, as shown in the preceding example. Then, save the modified bootstrap file and start the upgrade process, as described in the sections that follow.

Important

Starting with AMQ Broker 7.1.0, you can access AMQ Management Console only from the local host by default. To learn about configuring remote access to the console, see Configuring local and remote access to AMQ Management Console.

1.9. Upgrading a broker instance between Long Term Support versions

The following subsections describe how to upgrade a broker instance from the 7.4 Long Term Support (LTS) release stream to the 7.8 LTS release stream for different operating systems.

Important

Starting with AMQ Broker 7.1.0, you can access AMQ Management Console only from the local host by default. To learn about configuring remote access to the console, see Configuring local and remote access to AMQ Management Console.

1.9.1. Upgrading from 7.4.x to 7.8.x on Linux

Note

The name of the archive that you download could differ from what is used in the following examples.

Procedure

  1. Download the desired archive from the Red Hat Customer Portal. Follow the instructions provided in Downloading the AMQ Broker archive.
  2. Change the owner of the archive to the same user that owns the AMQ Broker installation to be upgraded. The following example shows a user called amq-broker.

    sudo chown amq-broker:amq-broker amq-broker-7.8.x.redhat-1.zip
  3. Move the archive to the directory created during the original installation of AMQ Broker. The following example uses /opt/redhat.

    sudo mv amq-broker-7.8.x.redhat-1.zip /opt/redhat
  4. As the directory owner, extract the contents of the compressed archive. In the following example, the user amq-broker extracts the archive using the unzip command.

    su - amq-broker
    cd /opt/redhat
    unzip amq-broker-7.8.x.redhat-1.zip
  5. If the broker is running, stop it.

    BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/bin/artemis stop
  6. Back up the instance directory of the broker by copying it to the home directory of the current user.

    cp -r BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR ~/
  7. (Optional) Note the current version of the broker. After the broker stops, you see a line similar to the one below at the end of the BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/log/artemis.log file.

    INFO  [org.apache.activemq.artemis.core.server] AMQ221001: Apache ActiveMQ Artemis Message Broker version 2.9.0.redhat-00001 [0.0.0.0, nodeID=554cce00-63d9-11e8-9808-54ee759954c4]
  8. Edit the BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/etc/artemis.profile configuration file.

    1. Set the ARTEMIS_HOME property to the new directory created when the archive was extracted.

      ARTEMIS_HOME='/opt/redhat/amq-broker-7.8.x-redhat-1'
    2. Locate the JAVA_ARGS property. Ensure that the bootstrap class path argument references the required version of a dependent file for the log manager, as shown below.

      -Xbootclasspath/a:$ARTEMIS_HOME/lib/wildfly-common-1.5.2.Final-redhat-00002.jar
  9. Edit the BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/etc/logging.properties configuration file.

    1. On the list of additional loggers to be configured, include the org.apache.activemq.audit.resource resource logger that was added in AMQ Broker 7.7.0.

      loggers=org.eclipse.jetty,org.jboss.logging,org.apache.activemq.artemis.core.server,org.apache.activemq.artemis.utils,org.apache.activemq.artemis.journal,org.apache.activemq.artemis.jms.server,org.apache.activemq.artemis.integration.bootstrap,org.apache.activemq.audit.base,org.apache.activemq.audit.message,org.apache.activemq.audit.resource
    2. Before the Console handler configuration section, add a default configuration for the resource logger.

      ..
      
      logger.org.apache.activemq.audit.resource.level=ERROR
      logger.org.apache.activemq.audit.resource.handlers=AUDIT_FILE
      logger.org.apache.activemq.audit.resource.useParentHandlers=false
      
      # Console handler configuration
      ..
  10. Edit the BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/etc/bootstrap.xml configuration file. In the web element, update the name of the .war file required by AMQ Management Console in 7.8.

    <web bind="http://localhost:8161" path="web">
        ...
        <app url="console" war="hawtio.war"/>
        ...
    </web>
  11. Start the upgraded broker.

    BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/bin/artemis run
  12. (Optional) Confirm that the broker is running and that the version has changed. After starting the broker, open the BROKER_INSTANCE_DIR/log/artemis.log file. Find two lines similar to the ones below. Note the new version number that appears in the log when the broker is live.
