The silly answer: yes, it's called a Domino server. Set up a test environment, a server and one or more clients, and move the applications over. The other option is to hire a consultant who will assist you in this process. Can be expensive.

We found very few problems in most applications. If I remember correctly, we decided to install the newer version over the older one, do some minor changes and then we waited for the phones to ring. We're still waiting... ;-)

I agree. Very few if any issues with applications during upgrade.

If you have the resources , then definitely create a etst environment.

If not, be sure that you can roll back th version by having a full backup.

I have never needed to do this.

I hope this helps !
