In this chapter, we describe what you need to do in terms of maintenance and how you can release an update of your Cloud App.
As the list of Fabasoft Cloud features keeps growing and growing over time, you will also have to keep your Fabasoft app.ducx project up to date.
With every release of a Fabasoft Cloud update, a plethora of new object classes and properties, use cases and applications, and dozens of other new component objects become available to you to use and incorporate into your Cloud App.
And even though we make every effort to minimize the impact on you and your Cloud App, you sometimes may be required to make some changes to your existing code in order to keep your Cloud App intact.
For example, if the reference of an object class provided by Fabasoft is changed for reasons of consistency, and your Cloud App uses this object class as a prerequisite, you will need to adapt your code before this change is released to the public with the next Fabasoft Cloud update.
Note: Periodically check the “What’s New” documents (see chapter “Fabasoft Cloud update cycle”) to find out about changes that might impact your Cloud App, so you can make necessary code modifications in time.
To keep your Cloud App up to date, carry out the following steps in Eclipse:
This way you get an overview of all warnings and errors in your project that may arise because of changes in Fabasoft Cloud caused by the update. For more information about renamed, deleted and obsolete component objects consult [Faba20i].
To create and release an updated version of your Cloud App, you have to follow these steps:
Easy peasy, isn’t it?
