Upgrade issues from v6r1 to v7r1? Published by: GL Slone on 15 Sep 2014 view comments(3)

We are preparing to upgrade our production partition from v6r1 to v7r1. Our development environment is at v7r1, though our change management system (Aldon/Rocket Software - LMi) is still compiling in DEV/QA and promoting into production at 6.1.

My question is this. what types of issues, or other gotchas, have been encountered in the upgrade, specifically RPG4, free, and CLLE, application issues. i know some SQL state and status changes were made, and we have to account for them, but were there others that may make our applications act squirrely?  Thanks for any help or direction you can give.
