For Unibol you DO NEED the sources, just like migrating to an AS/400.

There was an other product which allows objects to be used on an Unix
machine,
I don't recall the name.

Unibol worked fine with one (1) user, multi-user performance was just a
little over the power of the original 5360 D2K (On an HP9000).

My experiance is over 4 years old, so I don't know  the current status.

The rumors of an new system 36 (de AS/400 SSP machines) let us decide not
to look any depper into the possibillities.
