This article provides an overview of any migration information you might require if coming to the Platform SDK 8.5.0 release after starting development with an earlier version.
Deprecated Application Blocks
Starting with release 8.5.0, the deprecated Message Broker Application Block and Protocol Manager Application Block should not be used in any current development. Removal of these Application Blocks simplifies the API, making code clearer and more reliable and smoothing the Platform SDK learning curve.
Both application blocks should be removed from any existing applications where possible. The following articles provide migration guidelines for this change:
- Migration from Message Broker Application Block Usage
- Migration from Protocol Manager Application Block Usage
If not possible to remove the Application Blocks from your code, then it is possible to adopt the full source code (which is available) for the application block into your project as a last resort.
