19.3. Installing a Rollup Patch as a New Installation

A rollup patch is a new build

Since JBoss Fuse 6.2.1, a rollup patch file is a complete new build of the official target distribution. In other words, it is just like the original GA distribution, except that it includes later build artifacts.

Installing the new build

To install a new build, corresponding to a rollup patch level, perform the following steps:
  1. Identify which rollup patch you need to install and download it from the Customer Portal. For more details, see Section 19.2, “Finding the Right Patches to Apply”.
  2. Unzip the rollup patch file to a convenient location, just as you would with a regular GA distribution. This is your new installation of JBoss Fuse.

Comparison with patch process

Compared with the conventional patch process, installing a new build has the following advantages and limitations:
  • This approach is only for creating a completely new installation of JBoss Fuse. If your existing installation already has a lot of custom configuration, this might not be the most convenient approach to use.
  • The new build includes only the artifacts and configuration for the new patch level. There is thus no concept of rolling back to the GA version.
  • If you create a new fabric (using fabric:create), the default fabric profiles are already at the new patch level (same as the standalone container). It is therefore not necessary to patch the fabric.
