It's not clear in the documentation but can you install Websphere Dashboard Foundation V7.0.1 over Web Experience Factory V8?
The installation process implies that WDF installs WEF as part of its installation process. If that's the case, do I uninstall WEF V8 and then install WDF v7.0.1? If I do that - what version of WEF gets installed with WDF?

This is the accepted answer.WebSphere Dashboard Foundation v7.0.1 comes with it's own version of Web Experience Factory 7.0.1, since it comes with it's own version of WEF you cannot install it over WEF 8.

I'm guessing that a future WDF will be compatible with WEF V8+ ??
If I install the current WDF, is there a comparison chart of the differences between WPF 7 and WEF 8 anywhere?
I need to evaluate if it's worth going ahead with WDF or starting to develop with WEF 8 instead and hope that the dashboard features will become available later in my development cycle.

WDF has addtional functionality over and above WEF. When you install WDF, you essentially get WEF, plus some additional features sets provided by WDF. The only overlap in functionality between the 2 is that they both provide a Charting builder for iLog JViews charting.
I recommend you have a discussion with your IBM sales/client team about the WDF capabilities that you would like to leverage. Your IBM rep can then provide recommendations for which product is the better match for your requirements.
