Resolution

Please refers to Red Hat JBoss BxMS - Installation guide - 10.2. Applying Patches in Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6.3 in order to obtain further information on how to apply updates in BxMS 6.1+.

As you can see in the documentation there are some sets of distribution types. Each one of them should be used based on the container where BxMS is running on:

  • eap6.x: Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6
  • generic: Apache Tomcat
  • was8: IBM WebSphere Application Server 8
  • wls12c: Oracle WebLogic Server 12

Please refers to Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6 Supported Configurations in order to check the supported version for each application container.

Note that you can apply the updates at a distribution directory (e.g. eap6.x) so that applications will be updated (business-central.war/dashbuilder.war/kie-server.war) or you can apply it directly to a specific application (e.g. eap6.x-bc) so only business-central.war would be updated.
