Someone out there must hae done this conversion. We are planning on doing this conversion to ILE sometime and would like to know some of the issues. We are planning on using the IBM conversion tool, which I believe can do most of the programs, leaving only a few to "hand" code. What we are more concerned is the testing. Do we need to test the entire system to ensure correct conversion or can we trus the IBM software and just go over the system without any indepth testing?

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

Hi,

I would certainly not trust <b>any</b> conversion blindly, whether it’s from IBM or not. I would suggest that you carry out very thorough testing of your system before going live with the converted software.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that although the IBM conversion tool converts your RPGIII code to ILE/RPG syntax and converts some of the I-specs to D-specs, it does not really make use of the new features and possibilities in ILE/RPG.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    I have used the CVTRPGSCR command several times. I convert, compile and run, and have never had a problem. Leo Burkett

    Hi I have developed a set of programs, commands, procedures etc. that better job in converting RPG III and RPG IV to ILE in multiple clients. ADD, Z-ADD, SUB, DIV etc. to EVAL's taking into consideration the result field being large enough to receive the answer, but no BIF's are created that take advantage of the power of ILE it just produces a good starting point.
