> Backward compatibility can be tested by integrating projects that depend on the previous
version
> of the service with the new (development) version of the service. If it builds successfully,
then the
> new version is backward compatible for the functionality utilized by these projects.
Otherwise, a
> compatibility issue has been identified. Additionally, if integration is done after every
change to the
> service, it will also be possible to determine what change that caused the build to fail.
The concept
> is thus to utilize projects that depend on the service as test data and build these projects
at
> regular intervals with the new version of the service.
> The attached code proves shows how this can be implemented. The code is based on continuum
1.0.3.
