I'm working on code that is seven years old, and was written with now long-outdated libraries (for instance, Kendo UI when it was still free), using ASP.Net. Part of the problem is that someone in the distant past thought it would be a good idea to combine kendo ui and jquery into a single MINIFIED code file. This means that we cannot update either the Kendo stuff OR jquery, without possibly causing massive side effects, because...

This composite file is used across more than a dozen (web) apps. If we try to update ANYTHING in this file, we would descend into regression testing hell - so we leave it the hell alone, and simply deal with the fact that we're using a severely outdated version of jquery (and Kendo).


I think I'm missing something here. If the problem is that CombinedWtf.js is used in too many applications that would need test/updated simultaneously if anything was changed, why can't you update sites individually replacing the combined file with the legacy versions of all of its components, and then update them one at a time on the individual sites to keep the testing load under control?
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
