We are planning an upgrade from IS 6.0.1 to IS 6.5 in August 2006. We currently use IS + TN + SAP Adapter 4.6 SP5 with JCo 2.0.10. We have around 10 IDOC types processing from SAP to wM, and about 60 BAPIs / RFCs from wM to SAP. We don’t use any ART-type adapters.
Various Advantage knowledge base articles as long ago as July 2005 recommended to wait for SAP Adapter 6.5 if upgrading to IS 6.5, but Advantage compatibility page from Jan 2006 still showed SAP Adpater 4.6 to work with IS 6.5, and GA release of SAP Adapter 6.5 was only announced last month.
Has anybody trialled / used the SAP Adapter 6.5 yet? Any comments about risk / benefits of using brand new shiny SAP adapter ?
Please note that I have asked wM support about the “migration utilities” mentioned in the Release Notes, will post back here when I get a response.
