Vgo Software Automates Oracle Forms-to-Java Conversion
Vgo Software (formerly NEOS) has released Evo, an automated Oracle Forms-to-Java (J2EE) database application conversion solution. Evo automatically analyzes the form in three layers—user interface, business logic, and data access—and provides detailed understanding of a legacy application's semantic content. By providing insight into a legacy application's code structure, these reports allow developers to make intelligent decisions about its architecture in the Java environment.
Evo analysis lets developers see complexities within the source code that can benefit from further definition. Developers can also customize the translation engine before it goes to work. This approach improves the rate of automated conversion as well as the clarity, quality, and maintainability of the resulting converted application. Evo grew out of NEOS's experience manually modernizing hundreds of Oracle Forms applications to Java-J2EE for Fortune 500 clients.
Prices for Evo start at US$10,000 and are structured on a per-form basis.
