Code Modernization: Focus on ADA

Ada was designed and released from 1977 to 1983 as a high-level object-oriented language for use in real time and embedded systems. It is used extensively in systems such as air traffic management systems, banking and financial systems, communication and navigational satellites, medical equipment, and in military applications. Currently, although the Ada language has been updated, it is not as common as it once was. The ratio of Java programmers to Ada programmers is now about 20 to 1.

Code Modernization: Focus on Visual Basic 6 (VB6)

When that stalwart of facile enterprise development, Visual Basic 6, was retired by Microsoft, it left companies with a variety of problems. While many were able to immediately upgrade to Visual Basic .NET, Java, C++ and other platforms, cases remain in which VB6 was so embedded in the software infrastructure that it could not be easily changed or extricated. TSRI has been working on code transformation of numerous languages for many years, and now includes VB6 transformation.

In addition to performing documentation, transformation, and refactoring tasks all in-house, TSRI offers the ability for partner organizations to tap into TSRI's ability to parse legacy applications into an intermediate model stage--what we call Common Model Exchange. This provides you with the ability to use your technology against applications written in any of the 32+ legacy languages that TSRI supports, at any stage during a code documentation, transformation, or refactoring project.

COBOL to C++ - U.S. Air Force / WSCRS I & II

The U.S. Air Force's Weapons System Cost Retrieval System (WSCRS), designation H036C, was written in COBOL running on an Amdahl-5890 platform and using a flat file data base. The system required modernization by the Wright-Patterson Mission System Group (MSG) to improve base support for the Air Force weapon financial systems. TSRI transformed 100% of the WSCRS COBOL code into C++ and facilitated an error-free delivery to the customer several weeks ahead of schedule.

Customer: US Air Force

Source & Target Language: Cobol to C++
