Upgrade, not Update if using IAC? (Pega 7.1.4 to Pega 7.1.9)

Hello Upgrade Center experts,

We are planning to upgrade from Pega 7.1.4 to Pega 7.1.9 or later. As part of this, we would also upgrade CPM, CPMFS Strategic Applications. We use IAC extensively and also have BIX installed.

I thought, move from Pega 7.1.4 to latest version of Pega 7.1.x is considered ML Update and have to use "Pega719_UpdateGuide.pdf" guide; however in the same document on Page 4, it says the below:


Updates do not include additional products: You must upgrade if your system includes Pega Web Mashup (formerly Internet Application Composer (IAC) or Business Intelligence Exchange


Question 1: Please confirm as per above statement, if we must follow the Upgrade guide "Pega719_UpgradeGuide.pdf", not Update guide, because we use IAC.

Question 2: The version of IAC and BIX provided, "pxBIX_07.10.01.zip" under Additional_Products folder, as part of distribution package in 7.1.4 & 7.1.9 seems to be same.

Even if it's not same, the Pega-BIX ruleset jar can be deployed independently after performing an Update from Pega 7.1.4 to Pega 7.1.9. So, I do not understand the reason for performing Upgrade, instead of Update, if we use BIX.

Is this because, core Pega engine code has undergone BIX related changes from 7.1.4 to 7.1.9, not just Pega-BIX ruleset? Please clarify.

Look forward to your replies.
