I'm moving an old ZK project from version 3.6.4 to the latest version and encounter some problems with components from org.zkoss.zkex.zul won't work.

In some cases (Borderlayout and Center for example) I can change them to org.zkoss.zul.Borderlayout, etc. (which I assume is the correct new path for them?)

For other classes though (Columnlayout and Columnchildren) I can't find any other options and get a different compilation error: "The type org.zkoss.zul.impl.api.XulElement cannot be resolved."

Any ideas on how to upgrade from 3.6.4 to a later version (preferably the latest version)?

Regards, Rico

I am working in Eclipse and so far only changed the version in the ZK properties, is there anything else I need to do?

And now I realise that Columnlayout, for instance, is not part of the CE release (but where a part of the 3.6.4 version), which explains a lot...

If you have SimpleForm in your application, you need to alter it.
For the XulElement, can you check if the zul-8.x.x.jar is in your classpath?
That class should be in that jar.
