Update files 7.x to 8.x

Update files 7.x to 8.x

The update files (former mapping tables) contain the necessary information to update an eCl@ss release 7.x to a release 8.x.

You can only use these update files, if you are a registered user of the eCl@ss standard and if you possess both a source release 7.x and a target release 8.x.

The TU files (transaction upgrade) for classes and properties contain the predecessor-successor-relationship of the changed classes and properties respectively in release 8.x. In the several tables of the specific structural elements all absolute changes are listed, i.e.

  • all elements and relations that are no more part of release 8.x
  • all new elements and relations and
  • all elements and relations that have been changed and marked with a new version.

For more information please read the README file or the eCl@ss wiki entry.

NEW: Additionally to the update files in .csv format that have been published since several MajorReleases now, this product contains the following XML files as free-of-charge BETA versions:

  • SDF (Structure Difference Files) show with the help of the IRDI, whether structural elements have been changed in the new release, without containing information about the change itself. More information can be found in the eCl@ss wiki here.
  • CUF (Classification Update Files) are XML files that describe the class update between two consecutive eCl@ss releases, i.e. first of all the changes concerning Move/Split/Join. More information can be found in the eCl@ss wiki here.
  • TUF (Transaction Update Files) are XML files that contain information, whether a user’s property valuations in his system are still valid in the new release and which changes can be processed automatically. More information can be found in the eCl@ss wiki here.

PLEASE NOTE: These files have not been tested with productive data yet. They were tested against all existing check routines, business rules and other automatic database checks of the eCl@ss ContentDevelopmentPlatform (http://www.eclass-cdp.com), which processed the files. We therefore publish them as a BETA version and include them into the existing update file without extra charges.
