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.

This can be easily confirmed by looking at the contents of the official download package.
Scritps asupgrade and asupgrade.bat are simply not there. Does any one know of a workaround? We need to start tesing upgrades from 18.104.22.168 to 4.0.

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?

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.

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