Powerbuilder to ASP.NET
Migrating PowerBuilder Application to ASP.NET
When we Rewrite the Powerbuilder Application into ASP.NET codes, there are few things that needs to be considered. The time needs to be measured as a rewrite of same Codes, Business Logic and Validations. The risk needs to be measured as a rewrite. And the design effort should be measured as a rewrite.
We are emphasizing Rewrite and Design Effort because the word “Migrate” conjures up images of some translation mirroring the original. Why would anyone want to replicate the same coding design mistakes that were made back few years ago? Even with excellent quality code, I’d guess that excellent design choices in PowerBuilder may be awful design choices in ASP.NET and C#. No, one can afford to be living with the consequences of neglecting a good ASP.NET and C# design for the next coming years. That is why a Rewrite is important.
