Hi community,


I'm currently developing a plugin and now I have to add a column to one of the tables defined in my schema.xml. I tried just adding the column to the definition and increased the databaseVersion in plugin.xml. But when I start my instance, I get this error:

[INFO] [talledLocalContainer] 2014-01-27 16:38:41,504 [NonBlockingEventDispatcher-thread-2] [::] INFO com.jivesoftware.base.plugin.PluginSchemaManager - Upgrading schema for plugin 'myPlugin'... 
[INFO] [talledLocalContainer] 2014-01-27 16:38:41,538 [NonBlockingEventDispatcher-thread-2] [::] ERROR com.jivesoftware.base.plugin.PluginSchemaManager - Schema for plugin 'myPlugin' was NOT upgraded successfully.
[INFO] [talledLocalContainer] 2014-01-27 16:38:41,543 [NonBlockingEventDispatcher-thread-2] [::] ERROR com.jivesoftware.base.plugin.PluginManager - Error loading plugin
[INFO] [talledLocalContainer] com.jivesoftware.base.plugin.PluginConfigurationException: Failed installing or upgrading plugin 'myPlugin's schema.
[INFO] [talledLocalContainer] at com.jivesoftware.base.plugin.PluginManagerImpl.verifyPluginSchemaUpgraded(
[INFO] [talledLocalContainer] at com.jivesoftware.base.plugin.PluginManagerImpl.loadPlugin(

What do I have to do, to upgrade my table? Of course I could do it manually, but I want to do it the "proper" way. Do I need to write an upgrade.xml-file and how should it look?

Thanks for your help!
