Binary Compatibility between OpenFusion JacORB Releases

PrismTech's policy is to ensure that there are no binary incompatibilities between maintenance releases of OpenFusion JacORB (e.g. JacORB to - these are releases where the last two digits of the release number may change) and that OpenFusion JacORB jar files can be used interchangeably.

The test procedure involves building a test environment for a specific JacORB release (e.g. JacORB and making sure that all of the regression tests for this release run successfully; then for each subsequent JacORB release (e.g. JacORB, replacing the older jar files in the test environment with the new jar files and re-running the OpenFusion CORBA Services tests without re-compilation of the test environment.

The general Open Source community's policy which is also PrismTech's is that it is not possible to ensure binary backwards compatibility between major and minor ORB releases (e.g. JacORB 2.1.x.y to JacORB 2.3.x.y - these are releases where the first two digits of the release may change). OpenFusion JacORB jars for major and minor release cannot be used interchangeably.
