ATERAS® offers modernization of several legacy programming languages including:
Legacy code and database modernization retains the basic functionality of your existing applications and databases, but changes the look, flow or general feel for the end-user community, and changes the underlying technology for your support teams. With ATERAS, modernization to C# .NET or to Java results in beautifully native web-based applications that you maintain with Visual Studio, Eclipse or another standards-compliant IDE of choice. Rather than perpetuating 3270 routines that decide what key was pressed or to count how many lines of data can fit on a screen, the ATERAS modernization tools exploit the capabilities of the .NET or J2EE frameworks, generating methods, classes, functions and objects that provide buttons and scroll bars instead.
Modernization provides a fresh new set of web-based Java or .NET applications. The developer uses the existing application code and flow as the basis for the new application, guiding the toolset to generate a fully native web application for .NET or Java. With ATERAS, code modernization from COBOL to .NET or from COBOL to Java results in less application code, more functionality and a fresh user interface. The ATERAS code modernization from Natural to .NET or from Natural to Java results in a code base that is similar in size to the original Natural application, fully stateless and native to the new platform.
Legacy code modernization is accomplished using the eavRPM® tool - Enterprise Application Viewer Rapid Program Modernization.
