Visual Composer - Upgrade Consideration


Good day,

We are running Visual Composer 7.0 and would like to know if anyone has information from SAP on:

1.) End of life - We have had numerous "factual" opinions that Visual Composer is nearing end-of-life and as such we should not invest in or spend effort on solutions to develop using the toolset. In each of the cases I have refuted this by asking for evidence with none forthcoming. I would like to now once and for all lay these to rest with an official response from SAP to ensure the subject no longer keeps perpetuating. If anyone has any information in this regard or can recommend where I can go to obtain it would be appreciated.

2.) Visual Composer component upgrade - Is it possible to only update the VC components from 7.0 to 7.1(2) without any dependencies or impact to other Portal/Java components or is this not possible, as I would like to update VC only in our environment considering there is a sizable jump in the toolset features between those versions? The reason I am asking is that I am faced with having to hold off until May next year for this to be deployed with a support pack upgrade and would like to bring this forward if I have no impact or dependencies on other components being upgraded simultaneously.

Thanks in advance for your support and consideration,

Douglas Volkwyn.
