Installing testing/snapshot release binding into stable release installation

I am looking for a tutorial what exact steps need to be done to install a binding test/snapshot release in a stable release installation.

  • Where to download the test/snapshot binding
  • How to patch the installation with the test/snapshot binding.
  • How to revert to stable version if things went wrong

Uninstall stable binding through PaperUI/HABmin/Karaf/addons.cfg
download snapshot
put the jar into your addons folder
an openHAB restart may be needed

revert: delete the jar in your addons folder
install the binding through PaperUI/HABmin/Karaf/addons.cfg
clearing cache and tmp may be needed, restart openHAB

Be aware installing snapshot bindings in stable runtimes is not recommended and may not work
