Blog posts on desktop app modernization to Docker

This series of blog posts takes a VB6 application and converts it to a modern web application with RESTful endpoints, an Angular 6 client UI, ASP.NET Core server components, and readable code. Then puts the web app into a container--Docker for Windows--and builds it and runs it locally in the container. Finishes by pushing the container to Azure and running it from there. The series can be accessed at https://www.mobilize.net/blog/vb6-to-docker

Mobilize.Net Announces WebMAP5 AI-powered Source Code Transformation Tool

Posted by DeeDee Walsh on Mon, May, 07, 2018 @ 00:05 AM

Takes Aim at Lift & Shift “Modernization” Vendors

BELLEVUE, WA – May 7, 2018 – Mobilize.Net today released WebMAP 5.0, the industry’s leading tool for mobilizing desktop applications to the web. Built on its patented artificial intelligence-based source understanding and translation platform, this major upgrade takes obsolete legacy code and through deep semantic translation, delivers modern code in today’s leading languages, frameworks, and architectures, including native HTML5/JavaScript.  WebMAP 5.0 adds Angular support via Progress Kendo UI, a library of native Angular UI components, making for cleaner, faster code. In addition, WebMAP eradicates technical debt by transforming applications at the code level. Modernization solutions that do not address aging source code leave organizations vulnerable to stability and security risks and create ongoing maintenance problems.

“There are so many companies that promise ‘modernization’ for desktop apps attempting to fool customers into thinking they have modernized, when in fact they have just ‘lifted and shifted’ their still-toxic technical debt into a different box,” said Tom Button, CEO of Mobilize.Net. “WebMAP5 is full modernization – you get 100% native code, eradicating technical debt, no binary runtime license fees, no vendor lock-in, no lift and shift, targeting only modern languages and frameworks ideal for today’s developers to support and maintain efficiently going forward.”

The improvements in WebMAP5 are focused on four primary areas:

  • Automation: Achieves 96% or more automation for most projects and provides customers with a native code application that is runtime-free, royalty-free. Increasing automation not only reduces the direct and indirect costs of migration, but also reduces the scope and complexity of the project. Compared to a ground-up rewrite, AI-assisted automation reduces the cost of a project by 80-90%.
  • Developer productivity: WebMAP5 takes advantage of Aspect Oriented Programming to dramatically simplify server-side code. The resulting code on the new platform retains much of the readability and maintainability of the source application, which helps developers get up to speed quickly so they can readily support, maintain and upgrade their newly migrated app. In addition to saving time on training, organizations will be able to better leverage existing talent and resources.
  • Performance: WebMAP5-migrated apps are lightweight and fast. Using well-architected native code, and without the overhead of virtualization, the performance of the migrated applications matches the performance of natively developed apps.
  • Support for industry standard technologies: Supports popular industry standard technologies ensuring that organizations can eliminate legacy platforms and use readily available talent and resources.

Automated Code Modernization Outclasses Virtualization

In recent years, a bevy of companies claiming to be “modernization” vendors have positioned themselves as the cheapest way to migrate legacy applications to the cloud – to the detriment of customers. Shifting technical debt from on-premise to the cloud adds cost and latency, without curing the disease in the underlying IP. Rather than removing technical debt, lift and shift perpetuates toxic legacy, continuing an organization’s dependency on obsolete software stacks. By contrast, Mobilize.Net’s AI-powered approach efficiently translates and re-architects legacy applications, eradicating technical debt, generating functionally equivalent applications native to modern languages, frameworks, and platforms.

WebMAP Supports Popular 90’s Legacy

Mobilize.Net transforms legacy apps written in the most popular Windows languages including VB6, C#, PowerBuilder, Silverlight to the latest web technologies.

Customers and Partners Rely on Mobilize Modernization

“As customers migrate their critical applications and workflows to the web, the ability to accelerate the process is vitally important,” said Carl Bergenhem, Product Manager for Web Components, Progress. “With the deep integration of Kendo UI and WebMAP5, customers can create native web apps with enhanced experiences for their end users. Customer success with these new applications validates the value and impact of our collaboration.”

“Solutions like WebMAP offer customers the opportunity to accelerate their transformation from legacy applications to DevOps on Microsoft Azure,” said Shawn Nandi, senior director, strategy and partner for Microsoft Azure at Microsoft Corp. “This offering supports the adoption of cloud services, brings efficiency with automation and helps customers to focus on strategic areas of their business.”

“Mobilize tools create readable, maintainable, quality code,” said Matt Gropel, Director of Technology at AgWorks Software. “Mobilize uses familiar architecture and patterns which made it easy to immediately step into the code.” Added Greg Duhachek, CEO at AgWorks, “Mobilize technology is actually cheaper than a manual rewrite in time and dollars. It cut our costs in half.”

“Mobilize.Net enabled us to modernize one of our key buy-side applications faster and at lower cost than a manual rewrite would have incurred," said Alan Lawrence, Head of Development, Fidessa Buy-side. “We were impressed with Mobilize.Net's professional services too."

“Mobilize saved us time and money,” said David Hutchins, CEO of Hutchins Systems. With WebMAP, we got a native web application with no runtimes and no ongoing royalty payments.”
