Update WAS 6.40 SP3 to higher SP


I have installed SAP WAS 6.40 (ABAP, J2EE, SLD, JDI) SP3 from install DVDs. After installation I found, to configure JDI I need to upgrade installation to SP4. I have seen on SAP web site, SP10 is available. Could any one help me, how and which version I should take and upgrade my app. server in order to configure JDI properly.

Thanks in Advance,

    Hi Immy,

    As a general rule, it's always better to upgrade to the latest version available since it contains certain bug fixes which are not present in the earlier SP's. However, please note that in order to upgrade from SP3 to SP10 you must pass through upgrade to SP4 and then to SP10.

    Hope this helps,

      Hi Vladimir,

      Thanks for the response. Could you please let me know why do we need to first upgrade to SP4 and then to SP9 or SP10? Is there any documentation or SAP note available? If so could you please revert back with that info.

      Best Regards,
