9 ES v2.0: 3 Compatibility Issues Tuesday 6 th Feb 2007 Chester Zoo 1.Compatibility between ES v2.0 and the original Enterprise v1.1 data model: the v1.1 data model will defer to the new 2.0 data model, and a profile will be defined for mapping 1.1 to the new data model needs to be backwards compatible so that when it is implemented it can support features from ES v needs to be forwards compatible so that implementations of v1.0 can support features in the new 2.0 spec, i.e. if a 2.0 system interacts with a 1.0 system
