Migration Guide


To adapt to latest configuration from release. Create a new project, compare new configurations (under `config/*`) with yours then merge it. Bingo! you're on to new configurations.

aah CLI tool

aah CLI tool is revamped in v0.7 release. CLI supports POSIX flags (long & short), command alias for quick use and natural flag names. No change command names except version command, it become flag i.e. aah -v or aah --version.

Take a moment familiarize yourself. Run aah to see an improved CLI.


You will see similar output:

aah security library

In v0.7 release, aah achieves major milestone of security implementation - Authentication & Authorization. I have done lots of work in security library. Even though there is a change which might break aah v0.6 if you have used aah.AppSecurityManager() call, I doubt it. Otherwise no issues and no code change required in your application. So rest easy and upgrade it to latest version.

Only update required is, configuration. Add the following config into aah.conf.

# --------------------------------------------------------------
# Application Security
# Doc:
# --------------------------------------------------------------
include "./security.conf"

aah.conf Configuration

In aah.conf runtime.pooling { ... } configuration is no longer required, so please remove it. Since aah automatically manages the memory pooling effectively without any settings.
