Hi, my organisation is thinking of migrating to v8 from v6.
We have a number of v6 applications that share a v6 server and want
to convert the main one to v8. If we upgrade the server to run v8,
will v6 apps be able to run in this new environment? or will we
need to run a v6 and a v8 server? or convert all apps to v8?
CFMX 8 is not backwards compatible with CFMX 6, so there is
no way to know if this will work. I know that a number of tags and
parameters were deprecated between v6 and v7, so that's where the
problem will lie. There were no deprecated tages/parameters between
v7 and v8, so in theory that migration would be fine, but since
you're jumping two versions the only way to be sure is to test it
on a dev machine.
