We are currently in the development stages of planning to upgrade to SP 17 from SP9. Does anyone have a "timeline" that I should follow? Are there any SPs that I should add first or can I go straight from 9 to 17?
We just upgraded from SP2 to SP17 without much impact. The web-api (not sure I like SP9 required a new web-api)need to be upgraded for Java API programs and the attached work already describe we the things we saw that I recall. We did a table schema diff and saw just a couple new tables and no real modifications to existing tables so our SQL direct reports we not impacted either. Also, with an upgraded web-api file we did not even need to recompile our Java programs.
