Installing XWiki Watch 1.0 on XWiki Enterprise 1.4

If you are using a lower version of XWiki Enterprise (1.4 final or a 1.4 rc or one of the 1.4 milestones) but still want to run XWiki Watch 1.0, you need to replace a couple of libraries in the XWiki Enterprise you are running. To enjoy the experience of XWiki Watch 1.0 in XWiki enterprise 1.4, follow the next steps:

  • get xwiki-web-gwt-1.4.1.jar from our maven repository
  • go to webapps/xwiki/WEB-INF/lib folder in your XWiki Enterprise installation
  • replace the xwiki-web-gwt-1.4-*.jar library (1.4-* corresponding to the version of enterprise you are running) with the jar you just downloaded
  • restart your wiki
  • install the xwiki-watch-1.0.xar into your wiki following the instructions above, if you haven't already. If you are upgrading from an older version of XWiki Watch and you are using an XWiki Enterprise version lower than XWiki 1.4 milestone 2, because of this attachment import bug you will get an error while importing the XWiki Watch .xar. Delete the document Watch.GWT before importing the XWatch .xar. Don't forget to refresh the RSS Reader page after the import.

Installing XWiki Watch 1.0 on XWiki Enterprise 1.3

If you have a lower version of XWiki enterprise but still want to run XWiki Watch 1.0, you need to replace a couple of libraries in the XWiki Enterprise you are running. Note that this will upgrade the XWiki GWT API in your installation to the 1.4.1 version, which uses GWT-1.4.61 instead of 1.3.3. If you have developed your own applications on top of XWiki that use GWT and / or the XWiki GWT API and they are not compatible with GWT 1.4.61, you should not do this.

To enjoy the experience of XWiki Watch 1.0 in XWiki enterprise 1.3, follow the next steps:

  • get xwiki-web-gwt-1.4.1.jar from our maven repository
  • get gwt-servlet-1.4.61.jar from gwt maven repository
  • go to webapps/xwiki/WEB-INF/lib folder in your XWiki Enterprise installation
  • remove the gwt-servlet-1.3.3.jar and xwiki-web-gwt-1.3.x.jar libraries (1.3.x corresponding to the version of enterprise you are running). 
  • copy the two jars you just downloaded to this folder
  • restart your wiki
  • install the xwiki-watch-1.0.xar into your wiki following the instructions above, if you haven't already. If you are upgrading from an older version of XWiki Watch, because of this attachment import bug you will get an error while importing the XWiki Watch .xar. Delete the document Watch.GWT before importing the XWatch .xar. Don't forget to refresh the RSS Reader page after the import.

Your XWiki Watch installation is now ready, just access the Watch space and enjoy the collaborative experience!
