I have SAP Business Objects XI 3.2- Data Services production environment , I want to upgrade only Tomcat Server to Version 8.
My question is Does SAP SAP Business Objects XI3.2 Data Services support Tomcat Version 8 ? Will there be any issues migrating from Tomcat 5.5 to Tomcat version 8.
Appreciate your comments.
This is Julie from SAP Product Support - EIM.
There was never support for Tomcat beyond 5.5 for DS 3.2. And since DS 3.2 is no longer supported as of 3/31/2013, there never will be.
So if you decide you want to try to update, you should do so on a system which isn't important, then test it completely as you cannot create a support incident for this old version of DS.
Truthfully, you really should upgrade to the latest version, which is DS 4.2 SP7 (yes you can do a direct upgrade to this version provided you meet all hardware/software requirements).
