Hi,

Perfectly timed question!

No reason, just move to IIB v10.0.0.11

Does that mean that java classes compiled with a v10.0.0.11 toolkit can't be deployed to brokers running at an earlier fixpack level?

Toolkit fixpacks are easy to apply, but broker fixpacks require external approvals, and take a bit longer to roll out.

Is there a way to set the effective fixpack level of the toolkit, (similar to "mqsichangebroker -f"), so as to get any bug fixes, but also disable newer features?

Indeed you will need to make considerations with regards the Java level and deploy-able artifacts if you operate a mixed fixpack level environment, or decide to rollback after operating at the higher level for some time.

While the IIB Toolkit does not offer a "effective fixpack level" switch, the Eclipse Java Development Tooling used within it allows you to set the compliance level of build Java class files.

Code:
{java project} > Properties > Java Compiler > Compiler compliance level


You could use this to maintain Java 1.7 compliance for built java classes.

For more information, see IBM Integration Bus v10 support for Java 8.

That should work.

Thanks.
