When you upgrade your Geode server software, you will likely need to update your client applications in order to maintain compatibility with the upgraded servers. To support real-world implementations, servers can usually interoperate with a few different versions of the client software. In general, you will have best performance and reliability if:
- All clients run the same version of the client software.
- Clients and servers both run the latest versions of their respective software.
Changes you may need to make when you update, recompile, and link your client code include:
- Removing or replacing obsolete identifiers
- Reinstating secure client/server messaging
Review the Release Notes for a list of classes, methods, and other identifiers that are no longer present in the current release. Update client code so it no longer uses any of these removed identifiers.
