OMSVA has been updated to include new features,
bug fixes, and documentation updates. OMSVA V1.2 is an updated release
that includes the following new features:
The OpenVMS Migration Services Program is pleased to announce
the OpenVMS Migration Software for VAX to Alpha (OMSVA)
Formerly named DECmigrate, this updated product supports
the migration of OpenVMS VAX applications to OpenVMS Alpha
| The VAX
Environment Software Translator (VEST) is an OMSVA utility
that translates executable and shareable OpenVMS VAX images
into functionally equivalent images that run on OpenVMS Alpha
systems. A translated image is an OpenVMS Alpha image containing
both VAX code translated into Alpha code, as well as the original
OpenVMS VAX image.
- Native Alpha images of OMSVA utilities, which have the performance
advantage over the translated images of DECmigrate V1.1A utilities.
- Image reference renaming during translation. The user is now
able to control the names of the referenced translated shareable
images and to keep multiple versions of a translated image and
the corresponding .IIF file on the same system.
- New translated shareable images of the runtime libraries from
OpenVMS VAX V7.3. These images are installed with OMSVA V1.2
and coexist with the old translated shareable images.
The software and documentation is available
via the Web and will be distributed with the OpenVMS V7.3-1 CD
kit only. A formal OpenVMS Product Authorization Key (PAK) is
not needed to install or run the OMSVA product software; however,
customers are required to register accepting a freeware licensing
» access the agreement, complete a registration form, and download the software
