Guidelines for using pre-VCS 4.0 Agents

The agent framework supports all VCS agents by enabling them to communicate with the engine about the definitions of resource types, the values configured for the resource attributes, and entry points they use.

Changes made to the agent framework with VCS 4.0 and VCS 5.0 releases affect how agents developed using the pre-VCS 4.0 agent framework can be used. While not necessary, all pre-VCS 4.0 agents may be modified to work with the VCS 4.0 and later agent framework so that the new entry points can be used.

Note the following guidelines:


Agents developed on the 4.0 and later agent framework are not compatible with the 2.0 or the 3.5 pre-4.0 frameworks.
