      Description

      The asupgrade and asupgrade.bat scripts are missing in GlassFish 4.0 ZIP distribution (downloaded from http://download.java.net/glassfish/4.0/release/glassfish-4.0.zip, build 89). These scripts should be located under glassfish4/glassfish/bin and also the GF 4 Upgrade Guide PDF refers to them but they are missing in the downloaded ZIP archive.

        Assigning to documentation since the 4.0 upgrade guide (https://glassfish.java.net/docs/4.0/upgrade-guide.pdf) mentions using asupgrade.

        It looks like asupgrade was intentionally removed in GlassFish 4.0:

        Based on this I'm lowering the priority and warning that this may be closed as not-a-bug.

        The work around is to copy the source domain to the target and run "asadmin start-domain --upgrade"

        It is my understanding that upgrade to 4.0 was not well (if at all) tested, so no promises as to how well this will work.

        Upgrade tool also missing in self-extracting archive http://download.java.net/glassfish/4.0/release/glassfish-4.0-windows.exe

        Please, can anyone provide a location from where we can download it?
        We need to migrate a GF 2.1.1 server, so upgrade tool seems the only available option...

        This can be easily confirmed by looking at the contents of the official download package.

        http://download.java.net/glassfish/4.0/release/glassfish-4.0.zip

        Scritps asupgrade and asupgrade.bat are simply not there. Does any one know of a workaround? We need to start tesing upgrades from 3.1.2.2 to 4.0.
