udb DB2/aix upgrade v5.2 to version 7.1

udb DB2/aix upgrade v5.2 to version 7.1
Currently we are looking to upgrade db2 v5.2 to v 7.1 " EEE'". Currently we
are running microfocus cobol batch and tranaction server. Does anyone know
of any out standing problems with DB2 or Microfocus COBOL working together?
Also, will I need to re-compile and bind all my programs or just do a bind.
The IBM book says do a rebind, but since we have to rebuild the runtime lib
(MicroFocus) do I have to do a re-compile????


Thank you

Hi Mike,

I think the best way to go is to call Merant. We had an issue with MF Cobol
/db2 v7 on NT because we use the SQL directive to specify a different
user/password during precompile, but I don't know if that's also an issue on
AIX.
We didn't recompile our programs during the initial test. We only did a
rebind and everything still worked but we didn't go live with V7 yet.
