  • 1.  Migrating an old EGL project to RBD 9.6

    Posted Wed February 10, 2021 03:26 PM
    I have an old EGL project with a webservice that worked just fine, but I need to upgrade it,  now moving it to 9.6 I get this error : The type javax.xml.rpc.server.ServiceLifecycle cannot be resolved. It is indirectly referenced from required .class files

    The project is 8 years old and I am not really up to snuff on EGL, I looked at this EGL project 2 years ago and migrated it to 9.5 and got it to work there, but 9.6 is a challenge. 
    Any help would be appreciated, also any tips on migrating to 9.6.

    Ok, I figured it out. 
    I first migrated an entire workspace from 9.5 to 9.6, which somehow was then screwed up.
    Today I opened a 9.6 workspace and migrated each project separately from 9.5 and the migration worked out fine.
    As usual with Eclipse tools everything works fine if all is done as expected  and the developer doesn't deviate too much from the workflow. As soon as you  try to  fix something and you don't know exactly what you do, you are just trying out things, then most likely the workbench tools will fail and it is hard ro recover from there.
