PI 7.4 adapter engine(JAVA) to PO 7.5 upgrade

Currently we having PI 7.4 adapter engine(JAVA) SP 4 Patch 0 version and planning to upgrade PO 7.5 with latest SP and patches.

Current environment:

PI Adapter engine(JAVA)-->7.4 SP 08 patch 0

SQL DB-->2012

windows Platform-->2012

Kernel Version 7.40 patch 3301.

Upgrading PI adapter engine 7.4 (JAVA) to PO 7.5 will be an single step through SUM, Is it i'm right ? or any other method do i need to followup to achieve the PO upgrade?

Note: Before upgrade the PI 7.4 to PO 7.5, i'll upgrade the SQL DB and windows OS to 2016 from 2012 version.

    If you're currently on 7.4 with AEX (that is Advanced Adapter Engine Extended) and are on Java only than upgrading should be a "one step" procedure. This should be fairly straighforward. We've done the same from 7.4 AEX to 7.5 PO (please mind: I'm not an admin guy but more a developer / system responsible - so take my advice with a grain of salt)

    You will need to spend some time beforehand getting familiar with BPM as there's an assistant after upgrading to PO with some questions that you have a hard time answering, when not familiar with BPM.

    Apart from that, we've found that entries in the module of an sender/receiver adapter (especially MessageTransformBean) were "wrongly encoded" after upgrade (at least in NWDS), so a single ' will become & a p o s ; This will then take effect, once you re-deploy the iFlow. You may want to keep that in the back of your mind

    Thank you Jens !!

    Before an upgrade i'll get familiar with BPM. Please share with us, If you have more information about post steps,hints from developer or admin point of view to complete the PO upgrade successfully and it will helpful for me.

    You were mentioned that sender/receiver were wrongly encoded after the upgrade and how you fixed that ?

    Thank you very much !!

    List doesn't claim to be complete

    1. Late install of BPM BRM / /

    (however, I think, from the top of my head, we've done this in a one step with the upgrade to 7.50)

    2. Upgrade to 7.50

    3. PO Wizard



    links to 3.3


    Have a look at figure 7


    Have a look at this if you will not execute the wizard

    Manual activities for UWL, Process Desk.

    4. Cloud Content

    If you want to use it, make sure to read through this

    5. Migrate Channels (! might be Time Consuming if done manually)

    6. Adatpter Modules with wrong encodings of special characters like '

    Fix would be just entering the correct character again as ' instead of & a p o s ;
