Thank you for your feedback, Nelson. I’m glad our support engineers were able to quickly assist you with installing MVIS. We're happy you made the decision to adopt MVIS and I’m confident that the features and improvements we’re investing in will make the experience of creating and hosting RESTful APIs for MV applications with MVIS more valuable to you and all our clients.
I want to offer a point of clarity with regards to versions of UniVerse supported by MVIS. As stated in the MVIS 1.3.1 datasheet, the certified minimum version of UV is 11.3.3. Our policy is that we certify with the last two GA versions of the MultiValue data servers. However, both Stuart and Steve are correct that MVIS 1.3.1 works with UV 11.3.1. The previous release, MVIS 1.3.0, was certified with UV 11.3.1 and there aren’t any changes in UV 11.3.3 or MVIS 1.3.1 that break compatibility.
When a customer uses MVIS with a version that is earlier from the minimum certified, we’ll make our best effort to support and address defects. However, there may be instances in which an upgrade will be required.
Thanks to customers like you, willing to share your feedback, we can continually improve the product. We’re working on making the installation simpler and more robust. For example, by bundling both Java and Python to reduce or eliminate dependencies. Likewise, we’ll consider your feedback to improve the documentation. A recent change to how we publish documentation online makes it possible for us to make frequent updates to respond to customer feedback faster.
Thank you again for working through this with us, and I’m looking forward to learning more about your use of MVIS and the benefits you’re realizing. We’re always here to help too!
