Software Component Version

This is a very basic question. I will divide this into two questions:

1.When do you typically go from one Product / Software Component Version to another. Now I have all my Customer specific Product / Software Components at 1.0. We are about to move them to QA.

2.Say we move the SWC to QA and found some bugs later and fix it in DEV and move it again to QA. Is this a version change.

Give me some idea about how versions are maintained for Customer specic Products / Software Components.

Regards

Mike

    Mike,

    There is a difference between RELEASE-TRANSFER and EXPORT/IMPORT in XI.

    Release Transfer (Only Repository)

    Take over objects to next level SWCV of the same repository at end of development. SWCV1->SWCV2.

    Release Transfer is only for Repository objects.

    Export/Import:

    Repository1 -> Repository2 (all objects of a namespace or all objects of a SWCV)

    Directory1->Directory2

    Here both repository and directory objects are transported. Note that two repositories are involved.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Michael,

    In simple terms,when we have a particular software and we feel that we can bring in some more enhancements to the same software. We usually don’t release it as new software but we rather just release it as a higher version of the existing version. Same is the reason in our case also.

    As you know, the SWC acts as place holder for all your design objects. In simple terms, the newer version will be an enhancement to your older released version with added functionality.

    Also refer to the following links on help.sap.com for more detailed explanation and look for the compatibility changes when developing a new software component version.
