Could you please share what your Solaris 7 application is? And possibly provide
some back story as to why this application will only run on Solaris 7?
I (personally) have had very good luck with Sun's Application Binary guarantee.
I have one application that was compiled on Solaris 2.6 that still runs fine
today on Solaris 10 & 11.1.

If his application can truly only run correctly on Solaris 7, VirtualBox might
be the way for him to go. I believe what you are describing here is the Sun
project Etude, which allowed administrators to run a Solaris 8 (and later
Solaris 9) in a Solaris 10 zone. Solaris 11 has a similar function which allows
for the running of Solaris 10 in a Solaris 11.x zone. My understanding is that
etude is/was Sparc only.
