In the 6.2.1 application we have an activity that was originally built in 5.X.X using JAVA API Version 02
This activity uses a function called sendData(String,String)
This function has been deprecated (OR) has been replace by another function with a similar name in JAVA API Version 03-02 , we know this because when we attempt to change the JAVA API Version from 02 (to) 03-02 in the concerned activity it throws an error. Such changes are possible in 6.2.1 because it provides a drop down to choose a JAVA API Version in all activity rule forms under the 'Steps' tab; this is only meant for backward compatibility with V5. No such option is available in 7.X.X
Questions I have are ...
Is this going to be a problem post upgrade to 7.1.9 ?
Will the upgrade script take care of function name changes between JAVA API versions (02 Vs 03-02) ?
If the scripts do not take care of this then should we take care of the changes manually as part of pre-upgrade steps ?
Is there a list somewhere in PDN (OR) with 'ECS Team' that has "all deprecated functions + all functions that have been renamed" in JAVA API 03-02 (Vs API 02)?
To know which JAVA API Version is being used by your activity; Actions >>> View XML >>> Pop-up >>> Lookup xml tag pyJavaGenerateAPIVersion
By default any activity built in V6/V7 can only use JAVA API 03-02
