Hi guys,

as you may have noticed, a major cleanup has happened in trunk during the past days. The web app directory is nearly empty now. What used to be in webapp is now provided by apps which can be deployed on demand via the package manager in the dashboard. Accessing http://localhost:8080/exist/ will consequently redirect you to the dashboard.

The last step today was to move installed apps from the /db collection into /db/apps. Consequently, /exist/apps/ now maps to /db/apps and not /db. This change will likely break your existing installation, but it was necessary to avoid future chaos. If you want to update your working copy of eXist-db trunk, you have the following options:

Option 1) Uninstall any app you deployed into your eXist-db instance before updating, then reinstall them after the update.
** Make sure you remove all .xar from your $EXIST_HOME/autodeploy directory. The build scripts will download new versions once you build **

Option 2) Edit conf.xml.tmpl and change the root option in <repository root="/db/apps"/> back to "/db". Edit webapp/WEB-INF/controller-config.xml and change the mapping for /apps to point to /db again:

<root pattern="/apps" path="xmldb:exist:///db"/>

This will restore the old setup, i.e. apps are expected to reside in /db.
