I don't know. I've been involved in a major application migration from AS/400 to Unix/Oracle that was dumbed down to being a hardware upgrade. I think that whether you're going from AS/400 to Unix/Oracle or Unix/Oracle to AS/400 it still adds an extremely large layer of complexity to the project. Does anyone know how SAP on the iSeries is viewed by SAP? Lawson is the classic example, but I've seen many multi-platform software products where the AS/400 version is the bastard child. These vendors use development techniques which can be ported among many of the platform versions but which do not easily port to native iSeries languages or the database. -Jim James P.

The CFO wisely chose to stay with Unix. Sad
