Maybe remove the loadWMC / saveWMC modules. They are the only ones 
relying on jQuery UI afaik. Maybe it's just a missing SQL in the update

No, it's again a matter of missing SQL statements. But then again, I'm 
not sure if we are going to keep this application in 2.7. Personally, I 
think it's obsolete.

The folder is part of the Mapbender directory, so it is present after a 
checkout. It's on the same level as resources, http, and so on. The 
tools folder contains a script for creating the mo-files for i18n.

Maybe check what part of Mapbender you checked out. What command did you
