Executive Summary

The NewCode architected, migration toolset provides a re-engineering environment and automated code generation capability for migrating Microsoft Visual Basic legacy applications into .NET applications. The toolset runs as an extension to Microsoft Visual Studio. The legacy source code is parsed and transformed into a Domain Specific Model language (DSL) XML model, with model elements representing application components. The tool then automatically generates the model and associated code templates. The user can perform additional re-engineering on the model to implement reuse of code and enhancements such as inheritance, associations, class operations and more. The target .NET application code can then be generated from customisable, T4 templates that are linked to model elements.
