GeoNetwork 4.2.0 release is a major release.
Due to H2 database major update, when migrating from a previous version drop the following database caches:
JS/CSS cache database in $DATA_DIR/wro4j-cache.mv.db
Formatter cache database in $DATA_DIR/data/resources/htmlcache/formatter-cache/info-store.mv.db
If using H2 as the main database consider migrating to an external database (see Configuring the database) or read H2 migration guide and migrate the database to version 2 format.
Then start the application.
If using GeoNetwork 4.2.0 with an H2 version 1 database, the following error will be reported by H2 driver:
General error: "The write format 1 is smaller than the supported format 2 [2.1.212/5]" [50000-212]
