Compatibility between GeneXus and GeneXus Server versions

Official Content

Some aspects must be considered when working with different combinations of GeneXus and GeneXus Server.

Recommendation: Make sure that the GeneXus Server Upgrade is equal or higher than the GeneXus Upgrade. The reason is that new properties, or structural changes, may cause properties to lose their values when GeneXus Server's operations are performed.

Combinations

Using GeneXus Server v15

  • GeneXus v15

Any possible combination of GeneXus v15 and GeneXus Server will imply no errors or considerations required. For further information please refer to GeneXus Server 15.

  • GeneXus X Evolution 3 (any upgrade) and GeneXus X Evolution 2 (any upgrade)

There are some compatibility issues with this combination. This means that Create Knowledge Base from GeneXus Server, Send Knowledge Base and Update operations cannot be performed. Only basic operations like visualizing the Knowledge Base history are allowed.

Note: If a GeneXus X Evolution 3 or X Evolution 2 Knowledge Base is sent to a GeneXus Server v15 it will be converted into a GeneXus v15 Knowledge Base.

  • GeneXus X Evolution 1 (any upgrade)

The combination is not supported.

Using GeneXus v15 

  • GeneXus Server v15

Any possible combination of GeneXus v15 and GeneXus Server will imply no problems or considerations required. For further information please refer to GeneXus Server 15.

  • GeneXus Server X Evolution 3 (any upgrade)

Some considerations are necessary to work with this combination. 

For example, a Create Knowledge Base from GeneXus Server operation may be performed, but it ca not be updated, nor is it possible to perform a Commit operation to the GeneXus Server instance.

Only basic operations like visualizing the Knowledge Base history and performing a Show Differences are allowed.

Note: certain considerations are necessary when managing objects which invoke objects of GeneXus Modules.

  • GeneXus Server X Evolution 2 (any upgrade)

This is a very restricted scenario. Only Create Knowledge Base from GeneXus Server and other essential operations, like visualizing the history of the Knowledge Base, are supported.

  • GeneXus Server X Evolution 1 (any upgrade)

The combination is not supported.
