We're currently just a bit behind by using WAS 5.1 on our prod boxes. We started working on setting up WAS 6.1 back in November, since at the time we considered WAS 7.0 too new. But more time has gone by, and a developer with the IT Director's ear is pushing us to go to WAS 7.0.

Does anybody know if there are any big problems with 7.0 (Base or ND version)? Is there anything outstanding about 7.0 that makes it great to bypass 6.1? Or if the only main difference that 7.0 uses the J2EE 5 spec?

Thanks,
Dan

You'll have longer before you need to upgrade again.

That's "it". It's a pretty big difference though. Depends on what your risk tolerance is.
