Jakarta Transformer Service

   Journey Manager (JM) The transaction engine for the platform. |   System Manager / DevOps |  23.04 This feature was introduced in 23.04

Manager 23.04 comes with a Jakarta Transformer service, which allows you to upgrade your existing Groovy services and Security Managers to be compatible with Jakarta EE. You can run this service from the Unit Test tab to verify it or from Groovy Console to update your system.


This service exists in Manager 23.04 only. For Manager 23.10 and later, use the Jakarta Transformer scheduled service.

If you have upgraded Manager 23.04 to 23.10 and later, the Jakarta Transformer service must be deactivated.
