"I'm not a websphere expert but one correction here is that IBM i 6.1
support withdrawal has NOT been announced. V5R4 Support ends in September.
- Larry "DrFranken" Bolhuis"
Sorry, I wasn't clear when I wrote that. V6R1 of WebSphere is what I meant to say, not imply OS/400. As you pointed out, the OS EOL has not been announced. My other problem is that V5R4 of OS/400 is rolling off support at the end of the summer. I have an application that we're moving off of but not till the beginning of 2014. So I'll have to be unsupported for a few months..oh well.
As for WebSphere, any insight on the differences? The URL that I provided shows a chart that is less than helpful in determining what's really under the covers.
