You should not have TOO many substantial problems. There
was an issue with composite DW's on 8 (for migrations) but
that should have been cleared up by now. There were also
some .dll issues when apps were deployed, but those too
should have been rectified. Alot will obviously depend on
the complexity of your code and the architecture on which it
rests (PFC/PowerTool/Cornerstone,etc.). The foundations did
change (as Sybase went web-based in the move to 8.0), but
carefully, you should be ok.

Too, I have seen that depending on what you are looking to
do with the system once in 8 (and beyond) some migrated
objects lack the new features in their exported source
(especially the case for PDF and XML on dw's.)

Best of luck. Should you require additional advice, please
feel free to contact me: jobs4st@hotmail.com
