Hi,

I think the simpliest solution is:
Move the old installation to a new path (java1.5.0.08?) and install java 1.5.0.14 as always.
Then you still can move it around ...

... and if you install it at a different ws and copy it to the running one in a new directory?

You can install to an alternate root then move it around.

@Dennis: that i've read in the manual, but never done myself before, so i hoped somebody else can tell her what's the right syntax?

@Carmen - do you use swinstall in command line or GUI?

In GUI you can change the target from '/' to anything.
Also in command line you can specify an alternate path:
'swinstall .... @ target_selections

DESCRIPTION
The swinstall command installs the software_selections from a software
source to either the local host or to one or more target_selections
(root filesystems). By default, the software is configured for use on
the target after it is installed. (The software is not configured
when installed into an alternate root directory.)

-> 'swconfig' has to be done after installation(?)

Right, that's it.
swinstall -s abs-depot-path products ... @ abs-alternate-root

There is also a ,l=path that could be used if the SD product is set up correctly.

>Volkmar: swconfig has to be done after installation(?)

I think I tried it.  I don't think it can be done with:
swconfig ... @ alternate-root

@Dennis: 'Oops that should be: I don't think it can be done with:'

From 'man swconfig':
SYNOPSIS
swconfig [-p] [-u] [-v] [-c catalog] [-C session_file] ..... [@ target_selections]

NOTES:

+ You should execute swconfig when an initial configuration by swinstall failed, was deferred, or needs to be changed.

+ swinstall does not perform configuration on multiple versions of software.

+ The swconfig command only operates on software installed to the primary root file system.

+ swinstall and swremove do not run configure or unconfigure scripts when you specify an alternate root directory with those commands.

Seems like you *should* do it ...

Hi again,

about configured products:
'swlist -a state -l fileset | grep installed'

should show nothing - else you have to configure it with swconfig.
