This tool is intended to provide assistance in migrating VM:Webgateway CGIs to ESAWEB format. VM:Webgateway CGI programs are processed and those CGI commands replaced with equivalent ESAWEB CGI commands. CGIs using logical device support are also converted with VIG commands being replaced by corresponding ESAWEB LDEV calls. A replacement is also provided for most the VIGRTNS processing.
The objective of this conversion suite is to allow the customer to begin using ESAWEB very quickly. Output from ESAWEB CGI commands is reorganized into VM:Webgateway format to minimize coding changes and speed implementation. However, this 'reorganization' will come at some small impact to performance, so programming changes at some later point, intend to utilize the native ESAWEB variable and stem structures is encouraged. While improving performance to some degree, these programming changes will also reduce the complexity of the converted CGI.
Because of contextual programming style considerations, all CGI programs will not convert completely. However, we are setting our goal at an 80-90 percent conversion rate and have achieved 100 percent is several test scenarios.
The beta testing program will start Monday, September 29, 2008. Any interested parties should contact Velocity Software.
Note that conversion from EnterpriseWeb originally from Beyond Software has been provided for several years.
