The main advantage of moving to V8 is the availability of support ... IBM does not support V7 any more ... You will neither get bug fixes nor get support even if your production database is corrupted ..

There are a number of new application features as well as admin features ..

Check the documentation at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infoce...help/index.jsp for What's new in V8.

Of course, how useful these are to you will depend on your appl requirements and your site requirement ...
