  Note: While many of these tutorial were written for earlier versions of Oracle Intelligent Advisor, most will continue to run in later versions of Intelligent Advisor by following a couple of simple steps. Firstly, make sure to recompile the included project in the version of Oracle Policy Modeling that corresponds to the Intelligent Advisor runtime version you are targeting (e.g. OPM 10.3 if targeting OPA 10.3). Secondly, if the tutorial uses Intelligent Advisor Determinations Server, be sure to alter the SOAP end point to use the URL for the appropriate backward compatibile WSDL that corresponds to the Intelligent Advisor version for which the tutorial was developed.
