Upgrading from app server based AEM to jar based AEM

    Hi Experts,

    We have  AEM5.6.1 installed on top of JBOSS App server. Now we are planning to upgrade it to jar based standalone AEM6.2 without JBOSS . I refered to adobe docs but it does not have any information regarding migration of app server based 5.6.1 to jar based 6.2.
 
   We are not sure how to proceed with this. Please help us with some documentations or experiences you guys have in this regard.

Hi Tuhin,

   The link talks about upgrading jar based installations. But my case is i have to upgrade App server based 5.6.1 instance to jar based 6.2.

I dont think we have that usecase documented anywhare. However, I can think of couple of options

1. Start the new AEM instance from jar. Deploy all the code and move the content via package mgr. However, you may loose the versions in this approach.

2. Copy the existing repository folder to a directory. Start the new AEM instance by pointing to the external data store. In this case your repository will be standing outside your CQ installation folder.

Hope this helps !

As Loki said this is not documented then if version is not a problem for you proceed with the first approach "Start the new AEM instance from jar. Deploy all the code and move the content via package mgr" as mentioned by Loki.

Cheers,

We did thought about this approach but we were a bit unsure since we are migrating the repository from CRX2 to OAK.

  It  will be really helpful if you guys can brief us the second option
