Server: AEM-6.5.1 SP-6.5.5
Currently we have "core.wcm.components 2.7.0" installed and planning to upgrade this core.wcm.components alone. Can we directly update to the latest version 2.13.4
Or we need to update to intermediate and then the latest. Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
The wcm core components are designed for backward compatibility, just make sure you have the correct system requirements configured before going forward with the installation.
Be sure to run your test packs after installation to find any vulnerabilities.
There should not be any problem util your AEM version and code base supports it.
but before going ahead you can check the compatibility.
