 Hi All,
 I am in need of quick help. confirmation on version compatibility.
I have done some changes to our server extensions using 4.0.0.1  tomcat server. And because of some reasons we are rushing to upgrade pre- production server to 4.0.1
 So my query is:
1. my server extension changes done using 4.0.0.1 will work in 4.0.1 in our pre-production
2. Can  use process template generated from 4.0.1 to 4.0.0.1(back word compatibility) I want to generate   process template from  4.0.1(higher version ) to import 4.0.0.1 instance. Is it possible.

 Thanks,
Kavita

i assume for 1 you might have to rebuild your extensions referring to the newer libraries
for 2, yes 4.0.1 process template works with 4.0.0.1

Question 1. I agree with Dinesh. Kevita, you might want to read this post as well: https://jazz.net/forum/questions/108573/deploying-extensions-plugin-version-40-in-rtc-server-3013

Question 1. I would assume that 4.0.0.1 to 4.0.1 should be no problem. i would expect few API changes and you deploy in a slightly later version. But I still would import the source into 4.0.1 rebuild, test and then deploy. This is especially true if you have dependencies to fixed versions of other plugins.

Thanks Ralph for quick feedback.

 I gone through above mentioned link. Rebuild means import package into 4.0.1 development  server set up and create package with PDE Tools-->build Site.  I don't have 4.0.1 dev server set up. Is there any other simple way to make it fast.

The only solution avoiding to have a dev environment is to just deploy your 4.0.0.1 in 4.0.1, which should work in most of the cases.
