Switching technology services

I have now had the help from Lansa support for a very specific problem. We have a number of solutions, some of which use the XHTML technology service, some the PPC_XHTML technology service.

None of these solutions use more than one technology service.

PPC_XHTML is no longer supported by Lansa so when we upgraded to v.14 this presented a problem. Support found a way to make it work and we continued, making only minor adjustments to the code.

Now we have been upgraded to v.14.1 and something broke in the process.

It can still be made to work but we can only have either XHTML or PPC_XHTML working at the same time. Due to a deadline we will live with that for a short time and then we will start the migration of the PPC_XHTML solutions.

The work-around is this:

Getting XHTML to work: Use Tools -> Import to import the v.14.1. weblets. Done.

Getting PPC_XHTML to work: Use Tools -> Import to import the old v.12 weblets. Check out the specific design weblets made for our solution. Check out the WAM that we need to work with. Done.

So, not bad but not optimal either. That is of course the problem using a technology that is no longer supported.
