11.6.  Update PDFUnit-XML

The installation of a new release of PDFUnit-XML runs just like the initial installation, because PDFUnit-XML is always delivered as a full release, never incrementally.

Getting the New Release

If you use PDFUnit without a license, download the new ZIP file from the internet: http://www.pdfunit.com/en/download/index.html.

If you use PDFUnit with a license, you will receive a new release and a new license file by mail.

First Steps for all Development Environments

Before you start installing the new release, run all existing unit tests with the old release. They should be green.

Save your project.

Install the Update

Unzip the new release into a new folder.

Make sure that the new version of PDFUnit-XML is compatible with the existing version of PDFUnit-Java. You may also install a new version of PDFUnit-Java as described in the next chapter.

Copy all your test files, PDF documents and individual configuration files from the old project into the new release.

Last Step

Run your existing tests with the new release. If there are no documented incompatibilities between the old and new release, your tests should run. Otherwise read the release information.
