NWDI Migration from 7.0 to 7.31
We are in the process of upgrading our NWDI servers from 7.0 to 7.31 SP06. We have more than 20 tracks in the 7.0 version which are used for development. We have different types of developments going on in different tracks like Portal developments in a track, Webdynpro developments, ESS and MSS developments, Biller Direct etc. Our landscape is big where we support parallel project and production support activities in different tracks.
We would like to know what will happen to the old developments when we upgrade our NWDI server from 7.0 to 7.31. The dependent components in the latest 7.31 version is different from the 7.0 version.
1) Should we need to create new tracks and import the old developed SC into the new track?
2) We cannot change the production support track components as we need to support the ongoing production needs. What will happen to these tracks after migration to 7.31? Will it still be usable with older version of sca files? This question is specific to ESS, MSS and Biller Direct. We have made huge development changes to these tracks and need to support them until the newer migration goes live.
For track 1, all you need to do is add the build variant that was configured for JDK 1.4.2.
For track 2, you should create a new track for 731 and keep the old one as a reference.
