Benefits of automated migration
Generally, COOL:Gen migration can be very complicated, risky, costly and time-consuming. Our COOL:Gen automated migration solution not only allows migration to other programming language, but also allows improvement of the application.
Technical advantages of our solution:
source code is stored in central repository
application modeling approach is similar to COOL:Gen
additional modification and optimization of SQL commands is possible
proven source code generator technology is used
run-time is no longer necessary
integrated support of MQSeries is available
Basic principle of migration
The picture below shows the basic principle of migration.
During analysis of migration process, „CoolCrane-Analyzer“ tool generates so-called
Inventory, containing results of analysis including graphic representation.
„CoolCreane-Parser“ and TurboCycler tools then store processed source data into AppBuilder Repository, as program objects (Views, Fields, Rules, etc.).
Objects stored in AppBuilder Repository can then be used to generate applications for the target platform in OpenCobol, JAVA, or C# languages (or possibly in other languages supported by AppBuilder - WorkBench1).
