Transition tools

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 porting
» 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.
