Converting objects from v6r1 to v7r1 automatic? Published by: GL Slone on 08 Dec 2014 view comments(2)

A question, if I may. We are running our development partition at v7r1 but compiling objects at v6r1 for production. I have been told by several sources that if your OS is at 7.1, then objects created at target release 6.1 will automatically become 7.1 objects the first time they are "touched"/invoked on the 7.1 box.

How does on verify/view this? when I look, on the 7.1 box, at a program with WRKOBJ or DSPPGM, I still see 6.1 stamps on the object as the target release.

What is the truth and what am i missing?
