Integration Server Pre-Upgrade Analyzer

The Pre-Upgrade Analyzer for 10.11 has been re-written as an Integration Server package. This was to both make it much easier to use, as well as to take advantage of built-dependency management functionality. It analyzes your custom Integration Server packages, compares them to the new release, and generates reports that list the following:

  • Custom Adapter Connections, Services, Listeners and Notifications - Lists adapter assets, either for all installed adapters or a specific one.
  • Custom Assets that Depend on Changed Built-in Services - Lists custom services which reference changed built-in services.
  • Custom Assets that Depend on Deprecated Built-in Services - Lists custom services which reference deprecated built-in services.
  • Custom Services that Depend on a Specific Package - Lists custom services that depend on the specified package.
  • Custom Assets with Missing Dependencies - Lists services, document types, etc. being used by custom services that don’t actually exist on the current installation.
  • Custom Services Using Custom Java Services - Lists custom services which depend on custom Java services.

Hey and thanks for a brilliant solution!

I just wanted to clear; Does this tool only support upgrading from 10.7 to 10.11 or does it cover all supported upgrade paths for 10.11?

I ask because this tool is referenced in SOFTWARE AG UPGRADE PREPARATION AND PLANNING
GUIDE 10.11, and does not mention a certain upgrade path.


Hi Atli,

this will be a 2-Step approach.
See links below the article above.
There is one version of the Analyzer covering upgrades from 9.7 up to 10.7 and another one (the one this article is about) for upgrades from 10.7 to 10.11.


This version should work for upgrades to 10.7 and 10.11. It’s the target version that matters.

Hi @Theodore_Ezell1

There are a lot of missing services that have been changed that are not included in this 10.11 version. For example pub.flatFile:convertToValues is not included which has been changed.

Also, the WxPreUpgradeAnalyzer.util:isSameOrHigherVersion fails with arrayOutofBound exception when comparing strings with longer version numbers. For example, version in is compared with 6.5 which is in your changedServices.json file.

Hi Syed. Thanks for the feedback. I will work on fixes.

An interesting tool but should it be called “Post-upgrade analyzer?” One has to install 10.11 and put everything to it first, then run the checks.

For any report, getting the following error. What am I missing? I did update the fileAccessControl file with permissions.

report could not be created due to java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException in

Hi Venkat,

I would try debugging it and checking where it fails. It looks like some of the parameters in the json files are not passed to the service. Try turning off file permissions check from the server watt settings or directly check if getFile service can read the json files used by the package.

An InvocationTargetException is an exception that wraps another exception . You can check the full stacktrace to see the actual error here.


Can some one let me know how to resolve Custom Assets that Depend on Deprecated Built-in Services report could not be created due to java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException in this issue

we have installed the fontconfig package in the linux machine and rebooted the IS later it started working for us
