Crowd 2.1 Java Client Migration guide

Deciding Whether to Migrate

When you upgrade to Crowd 2.1 you have three options:

  1. Remain with the Crowd 2.0.7 SOAP Java client library - this will require no changes to your existing code. The SOAP WSDL has not and will not change between Crowd 2.0.x and Crowd 2.1.x.
  2. Update existing code to the Crowd 2.1.0 SOAP Java client
  3. Update existing code to the Crowd 2.1.0 REST Java client (recommended) - the new CrowdClient and CrowdHttpAuthenticator classes use the new Crowd REST API, unlocking more features such as membership queries.
