Exe / Windows Service migration to v2

  • Hello!

    I'm looking to migrate our instance from v1.10 to v2.3. I had read elsewhere that there is a npm tool available - is there any way to migrate without the npm utility? One of our environments cannot install npm, while it is crucial for us to deploy to this environment.

    On a similar note, does the migration restructure the data folder? I have been finding that v2 does not work well with the file store structure of v1.

    Thank you!

  • s there any way to migrate without the npm utility?

    The utility mainly helps you to get through the breaking changes introduced in the v2.
    You can fix your data and config manually. See the list of changes here

    There isn't a big restructuring. However, you need to migrate the images to the assets for example. The utility is there to help.

    I would recommend to run your current jsreport locally and then use the utility to update your local instance. Then you can deploy your full app including data to your production server.

  • Thanks for the response!

    I've since attempted to use the utility, but it appears to only work for npm installs. I'm running off of the windows service.

    I've also noticed some strange behavior. I exported the installation from the v1 studio and imported it on the v2 studio. Version 1 had minimal impact to system resources when ran locally, but as I run v2.3 as a service, the "Node.js: Service Side Javascript" process appears to continually consume 50% or more of the CPU. The task disappears when I stop the windows service, and comes back at ~50% again when I restart the jsreport service. Also, when the service first starts, it seems to take upwards of 20 minutes before the localhost page will respond. Here's what the report.log file looked like:

    Is there any particular reason why these behaviors might be happening?

    As always, thank you!

  • What if you run the v2.3 app without windows service. Just using command line

    node server.js


    jsreport start

    is it also that slow to start?
    Would you able to zip the whole application, upload it somewhere and send to my email "jan.blaha jsreport.net" the link?

  • Yes, it is also about that that slow using jsreport start.

    I'll send you an email in the next hour or two with the data. Thanks for taking a look at this!

  • I've used a service called "WeTransfer" to send you a zip of the files.

  • Thank you. I wrote you mail back.
    Let's continue over email to avoid exposing some confidential information.
    We will write the resolution afterward here.
