- HP e3000--Staying? Going? Gone: A Risk-Free Migration Master Class

Stephen Hjerpe, Senior Systems Engineer,
Alan Yeo, CEO
This live demonstration presents a complete, practical strategy for
a risk-free renovation and/or migration. It is applicable to homesteading
on the HP e3000 while still taking advantage of the latest COBOL
developments and GUI technology as well as to employing a straightforward
method to migrate HP e3000 MPE/iX-based applications to other platforms.
The session will take an HP COBOL, VPLUS, IMAGE, KSAM application and
perform a live conversion to ACUCOBOL-GT and GUI on the HP e3000.
Then you'll see a live migration of the application, data and MPE/iX
environment to another platform using ScreenJet to replace VPLUS,
Eloquence to replace IMAGE, VISION to replace KSAM,
and MPUX to replace MPE/iX, utilizing Omnidex indexing.
The life-after-migration summary will explore "where can you go from here"
- Eloquence: HP e3000 IMAGE Migration
- Michael Marxmeier,
Marxmeier Software AG
Virtually all MPE applications make use of the TurboIMAGE database.
Eloquence is one of the available options for migrating HP e3000 IMAGE
to the HP-UX, Linux and Windows platforms. This session will introduce
you to the Eloquence database architecture, administrative tasks and
data migration options. Because the Eloquence architecture differs
from IMAGE, it requires different administrative procedures.
The speaker will review a broad range of these administrative tasks,
from installation and configuration to day-to-day procedures.
Porting to Eloquence often becomes a simple recompile. Real-world
applications, however, are designed and built for a specific
environment, and a migration to a new environment, however similar,
may expose subtle differences. An overview of possible porting pitfalls
and solutions based upon customer feedback will address some of these issues.
This session also provides a live demonstration of how to get started
with the Eloquence database and how to move existing databases. You
will learn how to use the Eloquence database in your own environment.
