comment How to justify migration from Java 6 to Java 7?
@ Andrew Finnell : Sorry. I did not think it was that relevant. The actual porting was completed in less than a week. Mainly due to sun proprietary api's we used. It was a function specific compatibility affected code than actual number of lines of code( 4million approx). The delay caused was due to various factors like tools support- For example code coverage using cobertura 2.0. is just stabilizing. Another tool was Rational Functional Tester which required an upgrade (we chose not to do). May be I will write a note on overall factors affected the effort..

comment Does software rot refer primarily to performance, or to messy code?
+1. wikipedia equated software rot with code rot. We should edit that. There more software rot. One example is un-usable/difficult to use GUI. Out of date /wrong documentation contributes too.
