Suggestion for upgrade process

Suggestion for upgrade process

Postby JORGEMAL » Fri 28 Jan 2011 19:19

I just upgraded dotConnect for PostgreSQL from version 4.95.180 to 5.10.96 and I found that many changes were made to parts of my web project where characters like ñ, Ñ, á, é, í, ó, ú were found. I use this characters because I develop applications in Spanish. This post is only to suggest NOT to make any changes to web forms like these because, as it happened to me, I did not notice such changes and I had to work to recover things back to the way I need. I use a tool from a provider that, when an upgrade is applied, it just notifies that a web form has this kind of characters and does nothing to it, letting you make changes manually only in such forms. If there already is a workaround for this issue please let me know and disregard this post.

Best regards,

We have reproduced the issue. We will investigate it and notify you about the results as soon as possible. As a workaround, please change the references to the new version in the web forms with Spanish symbols manually. If provider doesn't make any changes on this page, it displays Spanish symbols correctly after upgrading.

When I upgraded my project to dotConnect for PostgreSQL 5.10.111, my User Controles (.ascx files) were not modified, I did it manually. I have such files in a folder named UserControls. I will appreciate your comments.
