I have a real sinking feeling about this.  A business partner sold them 
this setup and is installing the M36, but the client is looking forward to 
gradually installing new OS/400 applications and features.  From what you 
are saying Eric, it sounds like that isn't going to happen?

How tough is it to migrate from the M36 to S36E?  Is it a data save and 
restore some day in the future?

     Booth,
 
     Though I haven't ever work with M36 systems, my understanding is that 

     you'll end up with a SSP virtual machine running under OS400. M36 
runs 
     s36 objects just like a S36, no RPG3 or RPG4 in this invironment. New 

     apps in RPGIV can be developed on the OS400 side, but the cannot be 
     accessed directly from the M36 side. Data can be exchanged between 
the 
     two via DDM, but not directly as is possible in S36E (emulation 
     environment).
 
     If your client is planning to enhance applications via RPGIV, you may 

     want to use S36E instead of M36, because S36E can use a mix of RPGII, 

     RPGIII, RPGIV, OCL, CL, REXX, etc...... 
 
     If your client has S36 apps without source code that cannot be 
     upgraded, you're stuck with M36 as it is object compatible with the 
     S36.
 
     hth,

A client is switching to a new AS/400 from his Sys/36.  It is being 
installed in a M36 virtual machine.  Will that allow full OS/400 function, 

including RPGIV, for new development and applications?
