Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I believe your question is too vague.
What are you migrating?
Need to know that before we can recommend software to do it.

Ahhhhhhhh ..
not migration
GOGLE: AS/400 source control and change management
I’ve used Turnover and SEE/Change
Really effective — once they are properly configured.

    We have a development and Test enevironments on an AS/400 partition. We want tool to manage the movement of source code from one environment into another. I am not sure we plan to utlize the tool to track the migration of code on another platform. An exmaple of such a tool is from Aldon. I just wanted to know what other tool is out there and how it helps you manage source code changes.

    Turnover is the most popular, but is costly There are some freebee's on the web you can download. We are looking at MKS and SEE/Change. At this time I do not know much about these two.

    I've used MKS Implementer, Aldon, and Turnover. Of the 3, MKS was by far the best, Aldon the least.

    I've used Implementer, Aldon and TurnOver. For what was being done with them, Implementer was easiest to learn. However, it's also the one farthest back in my past. I currently use TurnOver frequently and have few issues that I haven't managed to figure out. Aldon was at a different site a number of years ago and now at a site I'm very slowly getting involved with -- it'll be a while before I have a clear level of comfort due to normal learning curve. Each has better and... ummm... "less" better features. (I have no interest in downgrading any of them. They can be well suited for somewhat different needs.) One question -- We want tool to manage the movement of source code from one environment into another. Is there a reason you want to move the source code to production? Why wouldn't you move just compiled objects? For debug, a list view might be better. If the thought is that the objects would be recompiled on production, do you really want to have compilations that might be under two different system configurations? Doesn't that make the viability of your development a little riskier? Having source on production also raises the chance of direct changes on production. Tom

    you can download Infinite iSeries for free and use it to migrate RPG applications to Linux. Recompile and your pretty much done.

    Hi Oscar - great advice, but this person wasn't actually trying to migrate .. just find a change management system to manage his object updates. Phil
