Adobe announced they will no longer support Flash Player after December 31, 2020 and blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021. It will no longer be possible to run Flash in the newer versions of most Web browsers. The major browser vendors (Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Apple) have announced they will stop supporting Flash Player.

FIN 5 is the current version of FIN. This version does not have Flash dependency because it is entirely HTML5. Certain legacy FIN versions have Flash dependencies and will need to be upgraded to FIN 5. To be compatible with FIN 5, the legacy license must be current and the legacy databases must be migrated.

J2 will provide database migration support services to complete the upgrades from FIN 4 to FIN 5. FIN 3 will require re-engineering and should be discussed with the sales team. The steps involved in the migration process are below and will be explained in more detail in the following sections.

  • Verifying the license maintenance
  • Preparing the project database
  • Estimating the time of delivery
  • Migrating the project database
  • Providing the newly updated database
  • Uploading the database

J2 is ONLY providing migration services to get the legacy database formatted for FIN 5. Migration support does not include extra services, engineering, or enhancements to the existing database. The client/integrator is responsible for upgrading their software from FIN 4 to FIN 5 and transferring any necessary files, pods, or settings.
