    Porting CS4 to CS5 in java

    Jimmyruts Level 1

      Hi,

       

      In my company we want to switch from CS4 server to CS5 server.

       

      We use java to talk to our server, so currently we use indesignserverapi.jar and snippets.jar for CS4.

       

      When I open the project (e.g. in eclipse) I tried to put the indesignserverapi.jar and snippers.jar for CS5 in the classpath.

       

      I saw a few compile errors due to methods that were renamed, but I could replace those method calls with other calls since only the 'name' of it seemed to have changed in the new jar.

       

      Now my question is:

       

      I (think) I ported my java code to be compatible with CS5. So normally when i build my code and put it on the server it should work correctly.

       

      But will it work when I put my ported CS5 code on a server that still runs CS4??

       

      Will it be backwards compatible?

       

      And if not, do have to maintain multiple version or are there other solutions to have 1 version and still be backwards compatible?

       

      Kind regards,

       

      Jimmy
