Grabbing that Migration Bull by the Horns

As the End of Service date (30 September 2010) approaches for WebSphere Partner Gateway (WPG) version 6.0, it is time to grab that Migration Bull by the horns and begin the process of upgrading to a newer release like WPG 6.1, 6.1.1, or 6.2. I thought I would share some useful links to what's new in WPG 6.2 and to some WebSphere Software Technical Exchange (WSTE) presentations for migrating from WPG 6.0 to a supported WPG release (6.1, 6.1.1 or 6.2) that will help you to steer that migration bull in the right direction.
To learn what's new in each of the releases that you may be migrating to, here are the links to the Announcement Letters for WPG 6.2, WPG 6.1.1, and WPG 6.1 (including What’s New in the release). If your choice is to upgrade to the latest release, which is WPG 6.2, you may want to visit the WPG 6.2 Information Center to help you in preparing to migrate; see section Migrating from previous versions of WebSphere Partner Gateway to version 6.2.
The first step in upgrading to any new release is to make sure that you are at the pre-requisite levels for System Requirements on each release. You can use this System Requirements page and then choose the Release and Platform. So once you have applied the necessary System Requirements, it is now time to begin the migration. To help you in roping that Migration Bull, I have provided some links to our IBM Education Assistant, a Migration white paper, and two WSTEs:
I hope this information makes that Migration Bull easier to steer... For more information on migration please navigate to our WPG support site, then click on your specific Edition such as Advanced or Enterprise. Then enter in the search words "migrate 6.2". This will bring up a number of documents on migration.
