The process for upgrading to 1.2 from either 1.1 or 1.1.1 is the same. If you are running DSpace 1.0 or 1.0.1, you need to follow the instructions for Upgrading From 1.0.1 to 1.1 before following these instructions.

[dspace]) has changed somewhat since 1.1.1. First up, your 'localized' JSPs (those in jsp/local) now need to be maintained in the source directory. So make a copy of them now! Once you've done that, you can remove [dspace]/jsp and [dspace]/oai, these are no longer used. (.war Web application archive files are used instead). Also, if you're using the same version of Tomcat as before, you need to remove the lines from Tomcat's conf/server.xml file that enable symbolic links for DSpace. These are the <Context> elements you added to get DSpace 1.1.1 working, looking something like this:
<Context path="/dspace" docBase="dspace" debug="0" reloadable="true" crossContext="true"> <Resources className="org.apache.naming.resources.FileDirContext" allowLinking="true" /> </Context>
