Mobilize.Net Launches New WebMAP 4.0 with Dramatic Increases in Automation and Output App Performance

Posted by DeeDee Walsh on Mon, Oct, 31, 2016 @ 12:10 PM

WebMAP 4.0 automates up to 97% of Windows to Web app migrations, reducing manual work by an order of magnitude, while improving performance on key web app performance benchmarks by 10X or more

 BELLEVUE, WA – Nov 1, 2016 – Mobilize.Net today announced that WebMAP 4.0, the industry’s leading tool for migrating Windows applications to the web, is available for immediate customer use. WebMAP 4.0 includes support for thousands of additional objects, properties, methods, events, and language features, dramatically decreasing the time, cost, and risk of converting Windows applications into web applications. In addition to the increased automation, WebMAP also improves output web application performance and generates code that is even easier to read and maintain. Customers can access WebMAP at studio.mobilize.net.

“In terms of sheer number of improvements, this is the biggest WebMAP release - ever,” said Tom Button, CEO of Mobilize.Net. “We built this tool based on the lessons learned from migrating millions of lines of real-world customer code with our own product. There’s no faster way to transform Windows desktop apps into modern, native, cloud and mobile-ready web apps.”

The improvements in WebMAP include:

  • Increased automation: Up to 97% automated migration[1] is possible via support for thousands of additional third party and Microsoft components and their associated properties, methods, and events. Mobilize also added support for many new language features in the most popular Windows programming languages. WebMAP 4.0 accelerates app migration from Windows to web, saving months or years of unnecessary manual work.
  • Faster code. WebMAP 4.0 produces code that is faster – both on the client and server. The tool radically reduces time needed for message serialization and state synchronization through Mobilize.Net’s new performance optimized implementation of the industry standard MVC architecture. The resulting web apps load faster and respond quicker to user input, like clicking a button or populating a data-bound control that requires a server action. For example, a data grid that required over 3 seconds to load 19k items in WebMAP 3 now loads 20 times faster – just 152 milliseconds. These controls are common in Windows desktop apps and have previously frustrated attempts of developers to move them to the web with similar user experience.
  • Readable and maintainable code. WebMAP 4.0 follows standard architectural patterns with which today’s developers are familiar. The generated code is simplified, well commented, and pulls forward the same mnemonic variable names and comments developers will recognize from the original application, and comes with full source code enabling easy updates in the future to add features and support new technologies.

To date, more than 30 million lines of code have been migrated using WebMAP. With WebMAP’s ability to get smarter with each migration, the tool has better automation than ever before.

WebMAP Offers Relief to Silverlight, PowerBuilder and .NET Customers

Customers who have made large investments in legacy desktop technologies such as Visual Basic, C#, PowerBuilder, Silverlight, .NET and others need not abandon the valuable IP in that source code. WebMAP 4.0 provides a quick and cost-effective path forward for legacy code to move to the modern world of web, mobile and cloud.

Customers and Partners Rely on Mobilize Modernization

“Mobilze.Net builds tools to help developers transform applications for our cloud-first, mobile-first world,” said Shawn Nandi, senior director, Microsoft Corp. “Mobilize.Net’s WebMAP modernization technology accelerates customers’ ability to move to Microsoft Azure and enjoy the benefits of mobile and the cloud.”

“Advanced has helped thousands of customers with legacy applications through complex modernization initiatives,” said Jeff Shelby, Director of Application Modernization at Advanced. “When our customers need to take their Windows applications to the cloud or mobile-enable them, we use WebMAP to ensure they get a top-performing solution that is also easy to maintain and enhance.”

“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.”

Modernize VB6 Code with new Mobilize.Net VB Upgrade Companion 7.0. New version cuts effort needed to move legacy apps to Windows 7, 8, or 10.

Posted by DeeDee Walsh on Wed, Feb, 17, 2016 @ 06:02 AM

Mobilize.Net announced Visual Basic Upgrade Companion version 7.0, available today, that makes big gains in improving the productivity of developers struggling to modernize legacy software applications. With the new version of VBUC, developers no longer need to have a copy of VB6 installed on their migration computer, reducing the complexity and effort needed to migrate VB6 code to modern Windows or Web.

Hundreds of thousands of developers worldwide have used VBUC to migrate billions of extant VB6 code to C# or VB.NET, making VBUC the most popular migration tool ever shipped. Prior to release, Mobilize.Net tested version 7.0 on millions of lines of real-world customer code, migrating in excess of 99.9 percent without the need for post-migration work.

Version 7 brings several new features to this popular tool, including:

  • No need for VB6 on the migration computer, eliminating the need to have a modern development system with an environment that also allowed VB6 to function. This scenario, no longer needed, was often difficult to create and time-consuming to troubleshoot.
  • Support for other (non-VB) libraries not on the development machine, a feature that enables developers to work on applications when they might not have full access to all the code.
  • Improvements to the application analysis and assessment tool, which now counts and reports on Windows APIs, designer files, and unsupported files.
  • Multiple discrete migration improvements to code generation plus dozens or coverage improvements.

VBUC Paves the Way to Mobile and Cloud

VBUC provides the best onramp to WebMAP, enabling customers to move from VB6 all the way to Web, mobile and cloud.

VBUC Is Used By Enterprises, ISVs and SIs*

Hundreds of thousands of customers have successfully used VBUC to convert code to .NET and beyond. All vertical markets are represented including healthcare, manufacturing, banking, energy and more; plus major corporations like Bank of America, Citigroup and Microsoft have used VBUC to transform large workloads to new platforms. In addition, system integrators like Avanade, Wipro GYSSA and others have found VBUC to be a very valuable tool in migrating their customers’ code to new platforms.

Automated Web App Creation with Modern Web Architecture

WebMAP2 refactors C#/Winforms applications to modern, industry standard, cloud-ready MVC web architecture supporting mobile HTML5 clients. Apps delivered by WebMAP2 are architecturally clean without proprietary runtimes. The migrated mobile applications can be run on premise or deployed to the cloud. In addition, WebMAP2 preserves variable names, comments, and structure, ensuring readability and maintainability of the resulting application. Customers starting from VB6 can use WebMAP2 also, using Mobilize.Net’s latest VBUC as the first pass.

Customers and Partners Rely on Mobilize.Net Modernization

Organizations are using WebMAP2 to accelerate the adoption of modern platforms. Prior to its broad release, WebMAP2 has been used to successfully migrate more than 10 million lines of C#/Winforms code and tens of thousands of Windows forms to HTML5. As a result, WebMAP2 includes thousands of mappings, support for hundreds of the most common controls, to generate native HTML5. Companies using WebMAP2 range from insurance to healthcare to financial services to manufacturing.

  • ROI for WebMAP2*
    • A leading restaurant chain with a massive delivery business had an unwieldy VB6 application that required complicated maintenance and installation. The company had attempted to rewrite the application three prior times but had repeatedly failed. By using WebMAP2, the company not only got its app up and running within three months, but also met all of its performance and reliability metrics – important when any delay or downtime translates to millions of dollars of lost revenue.
    • One of the world’s largest asset tracking companies chose to use WebMAP2 to migrate their asset tracking system after evaluating the cost and time of doing a manual rewrite. Realizing that a manual rewrite would take at least 3X the money and would double the time it would take to get to market, the company was able to save more than $5M and estimated they beat a manual rewrite by more than a year.
    • One of the world’s largest software companies used WebMAP2 to migrate a large, complicated but unscalable line-of-business order entry application that accounts for $800M of revenue. With WebMAP2, the application was migrated and running on the new platform in three months vs a year. In addition to saving $3M via WebMAP2, the company also protected itself from lost revenues from an obsolete architecture.
    • A leading provider of healthcare management solutions had a mission-critical application that was tethered to a proprietary browser – which complicated portability and also caused issues with Meaningful Use compliance. The company had tried unsuccessfully to rewrite the application but ultimately turned to WebMAP2 counting on its reputation for 100% success.
    • One of the world’s leading providers of financial services technology had multiple versions of a tax application running on obsolete technology and facing government compliance issues. By using WebMAP2 to migrate the code base to HTML5, the company saved over $4M plus at least a year of development time.

“In order to stay relevant in today’s mobile-first, cloud first world, enterprises everywhere are looking to transform their legacy applications,” said Mitra Azizirad, General Manager of Developer Platform Marketing and Sales at Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft Azure, combined with Visual Studio and Mobilize.Net’s modernization technology and expertise, help accelerate our customers’ process of moving their applications to the cloud.”  

"Pruvo’s mission is to ensure software quality from end to end and we identified Mobilize.Net as the best market solution for migration. Together, we can empower our customers so they are able to preserve previous investments and knowledge, opening doors to a wide range of technologies as web, mobile and cloud. WebMAP2 provides code quality and reduces the time and cost of moving applications to modern platforms. We look forward to continued collaboration in this great partnership with Mobilize.Net ", said André Sorpreso, general manager at Pruvo.

“At Crosslake Technologies, it’s important for us to provide premier services to our customers, said Russ Albright, Principal at Crosslake Technologies. “Mobilize.Net WebMAP2 has provided real value to us, helping us to manage large projects and ensure 100% customer satisfaction. We look forward to continuing to partner with Mobilize.Net to help customers accelerate the move to cloud-enabled mobile platforms.”

Mobilize.Net Releases New VB Upgrade Companion 6.3 That Offers Faster Code Migrations

Posted by DeeDee Walsh on Tue, Apr, 07, 2015 @ 10:04 AM


New version of Visual Basic Upgrade Companion is available for download now; brings substantial improvements to cut the time and effort of migration projects


 

Mobilize.Net today released a new version of its industry-leading migration technology, Visual Basic Upgrade Companion 6.3. This updated release introduces new technology to greatly increase developer productivity by reducing compile errors after migrating to .NET. Mobilize.Net developed VBUC 6.3 on over 1M lines of real-world VB6 code and reduced post-migration compile errors in Visual Studio by as much as 95%. A few areas that have been improved include: 

  • Structs with fixed length strings
  • Duplicate (shared) namespaces across projects
  • WinAPI calls (Pinvoke)
  • and more.

Does it help? Here are three actual real-world examples ran as validation tests (these are all very large VB6 applications of greater than 100K lines of code). The numbers represent the reduction in compiler errors comparing the output of VBUC 6.3 to 6.2:

  • Case A: 3200 errors before; 1721 errors after (46% reduction)
  • Case B: 1036 errors before; 339 errors after (66% reduction)
  • Case C: 1527 errors before; 63 errors after (96% reduction).

In addition, VBUC 6.3 dramatically cuts the amount of manual effort needed to migrate from ADODB to ADO.NET without using helper classes. The tool generates SqlDataReader patterns that compile and run on recordsets that are accessed sequentially (not randomly).

By default VBUC 6.3 no longer causes Visual Studio to generate warnings about references to now-deprecated Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility assemblies and has eliminated some obsolete library usages in the converted code.


VBUC 6.3 is easier, faster and produces better code which enables much greater developer productivity. VBUC 6.3 can be downloaded at: http://www.mobilize.net/vbuc-free-trial.
