51 == Installing XWiki Watch 1.0 on XWiki 1.4 ==
52
53 If you are using a lower version of XWiki (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 you are running. To enjoy the experience of XWiki Watch 1.0 in XWiki 1.4, follow the next steps:
54
55 * get ##xwiki-web-gwt-1.4.1.jar## from [[our maven repository>>http://maven.xwiki.org/releases/com/xpn/xwiki/platform/xwiki-web-gwt/1.4.1/xwiki-web-gwt-1.4.1.jar]]
56 * go to ##webapps/xwiki/WEB-INF/lib## folder in your XWiki installation
57 * replace the ##xwiki-web-gwt-1.4-*.jar## library (1.4-* corresponding to the version of XWiki you are running) with the jar you just downloaded
58 * restart your wiki
59 * install the ##xwiki-watch-1.0.xar## into your wiki following the [[instructions above>>||anchor="HXWikiWatchoveranexistingwiki28installingthexar29"]], if you haven't already. {{warning}}If you are upgrading from an older version of XWiki Watch and you are using an XWiki version lower than XWiki 1.4 milestone 2, because of [[this attachment import bug>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-1937]] 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.{{/warning}}

63 == Installing XWiki Watch 1.0 on XWiki 1.3 ==
64
65 If you have a lower version of XWiki but still want to run XWiki Watch 1.0, you need to replace a couple of libraries in the XWiki 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.
66
67 To enjoy the experience of XWiki Watch 1.0 in XWiki 1.3, follow the next steps:
68
69 * get ##xwiki-web-gwt-1.4.1.jar## from [[our maven repository>>http://maven.xwiki.org/releases/com/xpn/xwiki/platform/xwiki-web-gwt/1.4.1/xwiki-web-gwt-1.4.1.jar]]
70 * get ##gwt-servlet-1.4.61.jar## from [[gwt maven repository>>http://gwt-maven.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/mavenrepo/com/google/gwt/gwt-servlet/1.4.61/gwt-servlet-1.4.61.jar]]
71 * go to ##webapps/xwiki/WEB-INF/lib## folder in your XWiki installation
72 * 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 XWiki you are running).
73 * copy the two jars you just downloaded to this folder
74 * restart your wiki
75 * install the ##xwiki-watch-1.0.xa##r into your wiki following the [[instructions above>>||anchor="HXWikiWatchoveranexistingwiki28installingthexar29"]], if you haven't already. {{warning}}If you are upgrading from an older version of XWiki Watch, because of [[this attachment import bug>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-1937]] you will get an error while importing the XWiki Watch .xar.
