Forms2Net - Migrating Oracle Forms to Microsoft .NET
Forms2Net is an ATX Software commercial reengineering tool that automatically converts Oracle Forms applications to the equivalent .NET (C#) ones, with approximately 75% rate of automatic conversion. From the reengineering and transformation theoretical viewpoint, Forms2Net falls in the general category of language-platform conversion tools. This paper presents the important practical aspects of Forms2Net and the underlying technology. This paper discusses the semantic gap between Oracle Forms and .NET forms and the design principles and solution strategies used to bridge this gap.
