How to apply any SE hotfix
Generally this involves:
1. Stopping SE and the webserver
2. Renaming the component to be hotfixed
3. Putting the hotfixed component in place of the un-hotfixed component
(giving it the original name of the un-hotfixed component)
The specifics of doing this can vary based on which component you are patching.
Consult the ServletExec 5.0 Installation Guide to learn which components were
installed with your configuration of ServletExec and where those components
reside, so that you will be able to hotfix them if hotfixed versions were
provided in this hotfix.
- ServletExecXX.jar can typically be found in the
<ServletExec Install Directory>\lib\ directory.
