Windows XP End-of-Support 4/18/14

Yes, Windows XP will be reaching its end-of-support in April of this year. What does that mean for your Panther and JAM applications running on XP? We highly recommend that you consider moving these applications onto a modern platform in order to preserve their integrity.

You can easily redeploy your application onto Window 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 2008 or onto a Windows 2012 Server. If a development license is needed on the new server, just contact to request one.

If you are using this opportunity to migrate to a RedHat/Linux platform, Panther and JAM are supported on RHEL5 and higher as well as other recent Linux platforms.
