HP is committed to offering the resources and tools needed to ensure
smooth and successful application and systems transitions. This page offers a variety of tools to help with the transition to OpenVMS on Integrity servers.
Application Transition tools
The following transition tools provide additional support to help you
assess and plan your custom code transition efforts:
VAX Environment Software Translator (VEST): A utility that translates
executable and shareable OpenVMS VAX images into functionally equivalent
images that run on OpenVMS AlphaServer systems. A translated image is an
OpenVMS AlphaServer system image containing both VAX code translated into AlphaServer systems code,
as well as the original OpenVMS VAX image. To migrate your image to OpenVMS IA64 you need to additionally translate the translated image with the Alpha Environment Software Translator (AEST) Utility.
Translated Image Environment (TIE): A utility that provides the run-time
environment for translated image execution.
SEARCHALL.COM: This OpenVMS command procedure allows to search all files in a directory tree for items that are of interest in porting to OpenVMS I64.
PL/I to C/C++: Programming language conversion tools and services
provided by Software Resources International (SRI). For more information please
read the translation services overview.
For a list of items to consider when porting custom
code, please see the Custom Code Planning and Design module in the
transition modules package. The porting checklist is included in the supporting documentation.
