This is exactly where the risk lies.

If you go the 3rd party maintenance they would work with you before your Oracle support ends making sure you download everything like this that you might need in the future. But no one you can't download something that doesn't exist yet.

But I would venture the companies that plan to do OS or HW upgrades are not the ones going to 3rd party maintenance. (Or at least they don't think they are ever going to upgrade).

Subject: Re: Next Version of JDE World requires i 7.1

How effective is 3rd party maintenance? For example, let's say JDE World
ran on V5R4 and didn't pass ANZOBJCVN. Now you want to migrate to 7.1.
Let's say there are some programs that no one gets source for, like
security, licensing and a choked through utility or two to double check
licensing. Are 3rd party maintenance companies allowed to give you these
new object? Another scenario. Let's say you finally decide to move to a
power 7 with a different serial number. Can these third party maintenance
companies give you new keys? Or are you now stuck either repurchasing the
software or catching up on all maintenance to JDE plus a penalty?
