Possible for a module to be Ignition 7 & 8 compatible?

#1

Is there a way to mark a module as compatible with both Ignition 7.x and 8.x? I have found that, in order to be loaded (and not quarantined) by Ignition 8, the requiredIgnitionVersion block in my module’s pom.xml file has to be 8.0.0.

It is not possible. Numerous API signatures have changed in ways that make even reflection-based loading incompatible. Maintain separate branches in your source code version control.
