About This Product

Oracle Tuxedo Application Rehosting Workbench (Tuxedo ART Workbench) helps to accelerate rehosting projects by automating code and data migration, configuring and running compiles of migrated programs, creating runtime Tuxedo configurations for CICS, IMS, and batch applications, executing file and database reload tasks, and deploying migrated artifacts. It is built on a sophisticated foundation of advanced language processing technology that has been used to simplify and accelerate many large migration projects.

Sophisticated parsing and transformation capabilities are used by Workbench language processing tools to adapt COBOL code between compiler dialects, transform JCL to job scripts and adapt SQL calls for differences between DB2 and the Oracle database. Workbench data migration tools provide complete analysis of all data definitions and access patterns, which is then used to generate data schemas on target and produce data unload, reload, and validation utilities that completely automate the movement of file and relational data between systems. Configuration tools generate initial Tuxedo ubbconfigs, which can be used as is to start Tuxedo domains or extended if needed.

Workbench provides great migration accuracy, which minimizes the risk, cost and time of testing and debugging, and results in much faster project delivery. It is highly efficient, and has been used on very large applications with over 20 million lines of code. The tools can be used repeatedly to produce incremental changes as new components are added in or parameters or rule sets are adjusted. Once Workbench settings have been finalized for a specific project through a pilot, the mass migration of application components and any maintenance changes can be accomplished quickly and easily.

The automation of the migration process is key to success - it provides accuracy, uniformity, consistency, and assures high productivity, resulting in less risk and faster results. Companies that were deterred from migrating mainframe applications in the past due to long projects, high cost and heavy risk, can now accomplish these migrations - independently or with the help of Oracle Consulting or partner SIs - much quicker and achieve a much faster ROI.
