Issue/Introduction

With the announcement of the discontinuation of technical support for CA Easytrieve Report Generator release 6.4 (with the exception of the Japanese market) on December 15, 2021, how long will the compatibility functionality which is included in release 11.6 be supported?

Environment

CA Easytrieve Report Generator, release 11.6

 

Resolution

The compatibility mode will be available and supported for at least a couple more years from 2021 so that customers enough time to test as the CA Easytrieve Team helps them successfully migrate EZT programs from 6.4 to 11.6 syntax. 

All new enhancements are currently being done on 11.6 and the aim eventually is to bring customers to the latest GA release which is 11.6

Having said that, the CA Easytrieve Team is conscious that the migration of programs can be time consuming process so ways are being evaluated to help ease that migration. LSP implementation of Easytrieve is one utility that can help highlight differences between 6.4 and 11.6 syntax and assist with the migration.
