RE: RPG Code conversion



fixed

I suppose if one is going to castigate these entities for what they do, one
should be fair and also castigate one of the worst offenders raking in big
money to assist the move off the platform - IBM Global Services.

Really? "appears to be working to move you" is too harsh? Let's make it
harsher, then.

Check out all their success stories..

Re-hosting. Effective migration. Moving AS400/ Series i (sic) to
Windows.net. Migration. Migration. Migration.
They are in the business of migration. That means OFF the platform.

ASNA Application Migration Services:

. Migrating ASNA Visual RPG applications to .NET.
While they talk about IBM i modernization, many companies who have engaged
ASNA quickly learn they are in the business of migration. That means OFF the
platform.

From my discussions with them, I got the impression that if you were
happy
on the i, they were happy to sell you tools that would improve life on the
i. Granted, if your weren't happy on the i, they would be happy to sell
you the tools to move.

But at the link I posted, they highlight the following:
*DDS to SQL
*Rebuild RPG I/O
*RPG to RPG /Free
*Platform Independent UI/View Controller
*MVC Code Generation
*Transformation of Batch Logic
Hibernate and JPA Package
*Web Service Generation
*Compare Original and Recovered code
Builds Java data migration package

I've put an asterisk by the functions that are applicable to the idea
of modernizing the app while leaving it on i.

Be aware that ASNA and Fresche Legacy (who now own Databorough) appear to
be working to move you away from IBM i -including the database, the
application, and the platform.

Not sure about Java or C++, but ASNA offers the Monarch product for
conversion into .net...

Not a user, never seen its output, but ASNA has pretty good tools from
what I recall.

I know IBM and others have developed some code conversion utilities to
move RPG source code up a level (RPG III to RPG IV or RPG fixed column to
RPG free) but is anyone aware of a converter that could change RPG code
to
Java or C+?
