Openhabian - switching z-wave to 2.1.0 snapshot binding

New openhabian user. I’m trying to switch a 2.1.0 snapshot build that I created.

To make a database tweak, I downloaded and then build zwave using:
mvn compile
mvn deploy

That produced target/org.openhab.binding.zwave-2.1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

Uncertain of the right way to move openhabian to use my new binding. So far I tried:

  1. disabling 2.0.0 from PaperUI.
  2. putting that jar into /usr/share/openhab2/addons
  3. rebooting

Despite all of that, I still see only 2.0.0 in my paperui bindings page.

Been search all day for an answer, any help would be appreciated!

Are you shure aboute jar location?
What I can see is that my addions are in “/var/lib/openhab2/kar/openhab-addons-2.0.0/org/openhab/binding”. To be precise, zwave addon is in “/var/lib/openhab2/kar/openhab-addons-2.0.0/org/openhab/binding/org.openhab.binding.zwave/2.0.0/org.openhab.binding.zwave-2.0.0.jar”

Maybe you should try:

mkdir /var/lib/openhab2/kar/openhab-addons-2.0.0/org/openhab/binding/org.openhab.binding.zwave/2.1.0/
cp /usr/share/openhab2/addons/org.openhab.binding.zwave-2.1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar /var/lib/openhab2/kar/openhab-addons-2.0.0/org/openhab/binding/org.openhab.binding.zwave/2.1.0/


systemctl restart openhab2

To find out the currently active zwave binding:

log into the karaf console, do a bundle:list:

202 | Active | 80 | | ZWave Binding

Thanks for the help!

I powered up and saw:
193 | Installed | 80 | | ZWave Binding

I uninstalled the 2.0 binding, activated 2.1 and I think I’m in business.
193 | Active | 80 | | ZWave Binding

I don’t think my database change took effect, but it seems like I can now get my own builds out there and keep troubleshooting. I really appreciate the assistance.

Paper UI does not show versions (or any other info) of manually installed bindings. You can check their versions from the console (like you did)

That’s great to know. I appreciate it.

Based on all of that feedback, I’m 100% functional on the z-wave snapshot!



I uninstalled the 2.0 binding, activated 2.1 and I think I’m in business.

How have you activated 2.1. There is new binding on my list with status installed but I don’t know how to change to activated.
