The following topics address issues that occur when migrating a legacy platform to the current version of Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET. If you are migrating from 2.12 or 3.0 you might want to familiarize yourself with the new features and processes of Microsoft Platform Builder 4.2 by reading Platform Builder Tutorials in the Getting Started guide. Of particular interest is the new Upgrade Wizard in Platform Builder, which can automate many of your migration tasks.

Sooner or later we all contemplate porting software, for many this will not come to pass, it only takes a few moments consideration to know that porting your MFC application to VxWorks is not an option. However, until Java, Linux and Oracle succeed destroying to opposition it will remain a fact of life.

When evaluating porting strategies, you must choose between shallow and deep porting. Shallow ports use tools or emulation software. Deep ports rewrite code to take advantage of the new platform and improve the application's look-and-feel. You can port your application from Windows NT to the Solaris Operating Environment using tool-based porting, manual porting, or the Java platform

When Random House and Infusion Development wanted to simplify the maintenance and reduce the licensing costs of the Web site associated with the CodeNotes book series, they ported the site from JSP to Microsoft ASP.NET with the help of Microsoft's new Java Language Conversion Assistant 2.0. After porting, they found that new site features are faster and easier to develop, and the site is easier to modify in ASP.NET. They closely monitored and documented their own porting experience and used that as the basis for a JSP to ASP.NET Migration Guide.

Developing Cross-Platform ASP applications (pdf) Discusses the concept of cross-platform Web application development using Sun ONE ASP and Microsoft Active Server Pages products, and provides specific recommendations for writing applications that are platform-independent. (December 4, 2001)

Porting is a big subject. Witness the fact that I sat down to write a couple of thousand words on the subject and here we are in a third article and still I’m thinking of things I should cover! Even if you never need to do a port an awareness of the issues is important. Firstly, someone else may need to port your code so a little bit of thought up front may payoff in the long run. Secondly, porting is like travelling, it widens your horizons, why do other platforms do things different? can you live without a message pump? It imposes extra constrains on software which usually improve the quality because they force us to think more like engineers and less like hackers.

 

http://www.arnodevelopment.co.uk/writing/Overload/Porting/Porting2.pdf  

Of course, we would all like porting to be a non-issue. In an ideal world we build our products for multiple platforms. In the real world we can’t see the future: we don’t know which database vendor will become dominate in our field, or which OS will become strategically important to the company, nor do we know that the company will be taken over in a year and that as part of the IBM empire we must support OS/2!

Although the designers of Microsoft® ASP.NET have done an excellent job in preserving backward compatibility with ASP applications, there are a few key items you need to be aware of before undertaking the effort of moving a Web application from ASP to ASP.NET. A solid understanding of the technologies that have changed or been introduced with the .NET platform and ASP.NET will go a long way in making this process a whole lot easier.

J-ASP enables you to migrate Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP) applications to the J2EE platform. The ASP application is migrated to a JavaServer Page or Java Servlet application that run on any Web Servers that support Jsp/ Servlet.

want to tell you about a project that was simple at first glance. Initially, it looked like things would be fairly straightforward: Port a Web application over to ASP.NET and its Windows CE client application over to the Compact Framework. But as things turned out, it wasn’t that easy. The particulars of the applications and the politics of the environment we were working under conspired to make us choose between a graceful solution that ran like molasses in January, and a relatively ugly but much better-performing solution.
