Hi All,

I am doing feasibility study to convert legacy Focus mainframe application to new Technology.

I have identified two options.

1) simply go for Focus to Webfocus. This is most easy and simple solution if client is ready to buy Webfocus.

2) Re-engineering full application to .net technology.


I want more inputs on second option as I am not aware of .net platform and its limitations.

Please if somebody has some inputs then pls let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Vidhata27

Hi vidhata,

It seems you have a very huge task ahead.

Well, as far as 2nd option is concerned, why .net platform only?

I know a group of people who are even migrating from .net to other technologies like J2EE.

I would prefer J2EE which seems to be highly scalable and reliable as well.

However, I would love to watch this topic.

Thanks parikshit123,venkateswararao.m

I know this is huge task but it is very interesting also...

I got some documents on TCS website related to migration...but all people are talking about reverse engineering and forward engineering....I am thinking how I can automate this thing...I know I could not able to automate 100% but if we could automate at least 70% ...then also I can save lot of efforts.

Pratik why you are suggesting J2EE and not .net...you have any specific points to support your views then pls let me know.

I hope we will share more on this..

Best Wishes,
Vidhata
