JOVIAL to C++ Boeing ALCA ITAP

TSRI was asked to assist The Boeing Company to modernize the ALCA Integrated Tactical Avionics Program (ITAP). ITAP, originally a real-time embedded J73 JOVIAL program, required transformation to modern C++. The transformed version of ITAP needed to exhibit real-time performance equal to or better than the original system with platform independence. By converting the J73 JOVIAL into C++, Boeing reduced future maintenance costs with the availability of modern software development environments and greater flexibility in its choice of hardware upgrades.

How much automation actually makes a difference?
10% of 10 million lines of code is still 1 million lines.


A major modernization project involving millions or tens of millions of lines of code can take years and cost millions of dollars. Using artificial intelligence and modern computing method and automation, much of that time and expense can be eliminated. The question is, by how much? If your project starts out at 10 million lines of code and your automation technique cuts that down by 90%, you’re still left with a 1-million-line project that can take months to manually assess, document, transform, and refactor.


To appreciably accelerate large modernization projects, automation must eliminate as near as possible to 100% of the effort. That means in the range of 99.9X%. Without that, your organization can be left with significant and costly manual
loads that can take years, strain budgets, result in unacceptable error rates, and still produce poorly written modern code. Even advanced automation cannot take code straight from any source language to a modern cloud-ready language. First, the code must be translated through a universally accepted language modeling system and standard to maximize the extensibility and efficiency of application analysis, transformation, and refactoring—an Intermediate Object Model (IOM). This is one of the keys to accelerating modernization that The Software Revolution Inc. (TSRI) has implemented for their clients.

The languages used for specifying grammars and transformations must fit the specific problems at hand and be as expressive and efficient as possible. TSRI has developed and defined three domain-specific high-level specification languages JPGEN™, JTGEN™ and JRGEN™:

  • JPGEN™ defines grammar system and language models

  • JTGEN™ delineates transformations between these models

  • JRGEN™, a 5th generation artificial intelligence language supports first order logic and predicate calculus as well as 3GL and 4GL language constructs

Together, these three proprietary tools comprise TSRI’s JANUS Studio®.


IOM: A Literally Exponential Improvement in Transformation
The three components of JANUS Studio® transform and compile software code originally developed in language such as Ada, Visual Basic, Vax Basic, C, C++, COBOL, C#, Java, Jovial, FORTRAN, and more than 30 other languages into efficient, platform-neutral C++.  The core function of the IOM creates a language-neutral model into which all legacy source languages are transformed, and from which all modernized target languages can be generated. The IOM is effectively a universal translator. It simplifies the “O(n-squared)” language transformation problem to a much simpler “O(n+1)” language transformation problem. The IOM provides a set of generic language constructs that serve as a reusable language-neutral formalism for assessment, documentation, transformation, refactoring, and web-enablement.

This solution allows simple 64-bit multi-processor LINUX platforms to analyze massive software models using parallel processing.

Using IOM, and the expertise of TSRI’s exceptionally skilled developers, JANUS Studio® is simply the most powerful, least expensive, and lowest risk technology available to automatically modernize (assess, document, transform, refactor, and web-enable) legacy systems. Using the AI-enhanced capabilities of JANUS Studio®, 99.9X% of software transformation can be automated, cutting transformation project times from years to months—or weeks.
 

"Simply the most powerful, least expensive and lowest risk technology available to automatically assess, document, transform, refactor, and web-enable legacy systems.”


A Model for Automated Modernization


As Scale Increases, So Does Efficiency
JANUS Studio®  allows TSRI developers to cut modernization projects so drastically using Artificial Intelligence-based modeling that drives that 99.9X% automation rate. Not only that, but because every application and every language is modernized and transformed at the meta-model stage, every prior project (regardless of the language or industry) further develops the toolset and TSRI libraries, resulting in greater value for each future project. The more scale, the more uses, the more efficient the process.

2002 - USAF Software Technology Conference

 

"The Software Revolution, Inc. To Participate In The U.S. Air Force's Software Technology Conference"

Kirkland, WA. (March 7, 2002) – The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI) will be a major participant at the upcoming Air Force-sponsored Software Technology Conference (STC) in Salt Lake City, Utah scheduled for 29 April to 2 May 2002. Located in Booth 927 of the Exhibition Hall, the senior staff of TSRI will be available throughout the week to answer questions and provide in-depth demonstrations of the eVolution 2000 TM toolset.

For those attending this important conference, it will be an excellent opportunity for a first-hand view of TSRI's automated legacy system modernization technology that is sweeping the logistics and maintenance, and operational communities within the Air Force. TSRI will be providing real-time transformation demonstrations of the Jovial, Fortran, Cobol, Assembler, Ada, and CMS2 languages into C++. It will also be an opportunity to learn about the range of contract vehicles now available to TSRI for quickly and efficiently providing support to the Air Force

eVolution 2000™ toolset

The foundation of TSRI's capabilities is the eVolution 2000™ tool-set. Through the application of state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technologies, TSRI has developed a highly automated capability (99%+) to assess, transform, re-factor, and if desired web-enable, a wide variety of application source languages, along with their associated databases. TSRI can transform Cobol, Jovial, C, Fortran, Assembler, Ada, and CMS2 into modern, platform-independent C++, JAVA, or XML (eXtended Markup Language) with CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) compatibility.

Using eVolution 2000™, TSRI can carry out sophisticated legacy software modernization in a fraction of the time and budget associated with alternative approaches. More importantly, TSRI reduces the technical and schedule risk associated with legacy system modernization by generating modernized applications and data that are fully documented and guaranteed accurate functional equivalents of the original legacy system.

TSRI Modernizes European ATC

 

"Thales Air Systems Java Flight Data Processing (JFDP) European-E Air Traffic Management (EATMS) approved for operation in late 2010."

Kirkland, WA. (October 15, 2009) – Thales Air Systems (THALES) of France awarded a ‘follow-on’ contract to The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI) in April to modernize the Flight Profile Library (FPL), the core of the Java Flight Data Processor (FDP) of THALES Eurocat-E air traffic control system. Under this contract, TSRI automatically translated the FPL from Ada into Java, refactored the Java to remove dead code, refactored Ada generics into Java generics, and detected and refactored global variables to minimize their visibility as Java member data. Modernization of the FPL module completes a project spanning 4-years in which TSRI supported the modernization of three variations of Eurocat-E, comprising approximately 1.7 million lines of Ada code into real time Java. Automated code translation, code redundancy analysis and code consolidation techniques were applied to modernize the three primary variations of the Eurocat (comprising approximately 1.6 million lines of code) with unprecedented economy of scale and scope and with two to one improvement in key code quality metrics according to published case studies. The European aviation authority required automated code transformation be used to minimize introduction of human error during the modernization of the Eurocat system. The transformed Java Eurocat complies with safety requirements of Eurocontrol (ESARR6) mandates governing SoftWare Assurance Levels (SWAL assessment required for ground applications).

Thales Air Systems S.A. is a major global provider of air traffic management systems and The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI) is an industry leader in automated legacy system modernization. Thales Air Systems supplies Eurocat-E as the primary air traffic control system in Europe, Asia and Australia where Eurocat is installed at 260 air traffic control centers worldwide. The JFDP air traffic control system is scheduled to commence operation at the end of 2010 at airports all across Europe and Asia. 

Philip Newcomb, The Software Revolution Chief Executive Officer said, “The Software Revolution is very proud to have played an instrumental role in the modernization of the European air traffic control system for Thales. A key to the success of this project was the use of JANUS Studio®    for automated transformation, refactoring and creation of the Transformation Blueprint ® to document the products and process. I believe the FAA could dramatically reduce costs as well as its 15-year schedule for the NextGen air traffic control system upgrade through the use of similar methods to those the Europeans have employed to modernize the European air traffic control system.”
