WebSphere Portal version 220.127.116.11 supports installing and running on WebSphere Application Server version 7.0, but does not fully exploit its capabilities when compared to Application Server version 6.1.
No previous releases of WebSphere Portal will support Application Server V7.0, including version 18.104.22.168, even when upgraded to version 22.214.171.124 by applying a fix pack. The refreshed installation images for version 126.96.36.199 must be used to install against an existing Application Server version 7.0. There is no media or included license for Application Server version 7.0 provided in any WebSphere Portal version 188.8.131.52 packaging, edition, or e-Assembly.
Application Server version 7.0 licensing, installation media or images must be obtained separately.
