Need of client's update when updating broker (patch version)?


I am planning to update Zeebe broker from 1.1.1 to 1.1.10.
Do I need to update my zeebe-client-java to the relevant version as well (from 1.1.1 to 1.1.10)?

I haven’t been able to find any information about this.
I’ve found that patch versions are compatible respecting Public API (of a client), see Public API | Camunda Cloud Docs
That does not automatically mean that version of my broker and used client might be different.

Many thanks.

Kind regards,

Welcome to the Camunda Cloud Community :slight_smile:

As far as I know there is no obligation to update the dependency of your client if there is a minor version update of your zeebe-broker.
Nevertheless, it definitively won’t hurt updating the client dependencies as well.

Hello Thomas!

Thank you for such a quick response.
My main motivation for the update is the log4j issue so I want to do a minimalistic job for now.
I wasn’t sure about restrictions about differences in patch version (x.y.z, where z is a patch version number) between the broker and the client.
Next time I’ll update everything to the same and the newest version.

Have a nice day,
