WebSphere Application Server Support is delivering this strategy to provide a clear update path which is easier to maintain than managing multiple, individual Application Server fixes.
In response to requests for published collections of fixes that are:
- Delivered in a timely manner
- Tested together
WebSphere Application Server V8.0 will provide Fix Packs regularly (approximately every 3-4 months). This provides a consistent maintenance approach you can follow as you manage your products.
Installing preventative maintenance as soon as it becomes available will save you time. As long as you test appropriately, actively applying preventative maintenance can avoid problems that could result in a service call.
