Migration Support

The Rational Application Developer v6.0 automatic workspace and project migration supports migrating content created from WebSphere Studio Application Developer v5.1.x. Refer to the Migration Support information found on the Overview page for more information on the migration support available or alternatives if the recommended migration support path is not possible.

See the Compatibility with WebSphere Studio v5.1.x article for more information on the compatibility of workspaces and projects between v5.1 and v6.0.

After the migration is complete it is recommended to disable compatibility with earlier product versions to ensure that additional migration activities do not occur while using Rational Application Developer v6.0. As mentioned in this article, this step should only be followed if there you do not intent to have these projects used in a WebSphere Studio Application Developer v5.1.x environment.
