Hi Boris,

Read through the upgrade documentation and check out the changes introduced
in the schema during the process. Not having done so, if the changes are in
some sense one-to-one, you may be able to have your production data pushed
into your test system with judicious scripting, triggers, views,.... It may
be more useful to script the upgrade process completely for the DB and then
update it once a day with the latest information. Going both ways would be
EXTREMELY challenging. Let us know if you get something like this working,
I think it would be of interest to others.
