Upgrade launchpad to latest official versions
Issue: How can I upgrade launchpad?
There are some fixes in the latest Apache Felix Framework, how can I update it in Adobe Experience Manager?
Follow these steps:
- Download the new base jar from the official Maven repository at http://search.maven.org/#search%7Cga%7C1%7Corg.apache.sling.launchpad.base. You can pick the version. When this article was written, 5.0.1-2.6.2 is recommended (it still uses javax.servlet.api 2.5). But, you can use 5.2.0-2.6.4 if you don't have dependencies on earlier version of servlet API.
- Shut down the instance.
- Replace the base jar in the installation (default in crx-quickstart/launchpad).
- Restart the instance with -Dorg.apache.sling.launchpad.startupmode=RESTART.
Validate it on your side if that help to resolve this issue, and note the general disclaimer for usage on production

About Servlet API dependencies: Servlet API is provided by the servlet engine CQSE, Felix / Jetty HTTP bunble or other (Websphere, Weblogic, Tomcat , JBoss, and so on). Check if it works with the launchpad base available in the Maven repository (you can check the pom.xml for information about the dependency on the servlet API).
