If a vendor says they still support V5R4 with their product be very
cautious about them. They may have a real problem supporting 7.2.
- The highest version of Java (5) supplied on media for V5R4 will not run
on 7.2. How many people downloaded a newer version of Java (6), and,
since V5R4 is out of support is it too late to do so?
- No version of Domino supported on V5R4 is supported on 7.2. That's
going to make system migrations for those people a real hoot.
- Websphere Application Server (WAS) 6 & 7 are not supported on 7.2.
- Hopefully they distribute their product other than on tape. So many
tape drives have died since then.
