Upgrade Notes

The Upgrade Guide provides general advice on upgrading Elastic Path projects. Specific upgrade considerations for Elastic Path Commerce 7.0.1 are covered below:

Fixed Cortex extension model

The previous extension model relied on OSGi fragments. The following changes were made to fix issues with extending core classes and configuration in Cortex and remove the need for ext-core to be a fragment.

  • The ext-core bundle was added to the Embed-Dependency section in ext-commerce-engine-wrapper POM.
  • The ext-core blueprint configuration springCtx-import.xml file was renamed to ext-springCtx-import.xml to avoid naming conflicts with ep-core blueprint configuration.
  • The Bundle-Blueprint header in the ext-core manifest was updated to ensure to ensure correct ordering of blueprint files.
