This is a software tool and migration process from Sybase ASA to MS SQL Server Express data base.
Highly automated and software driven processes are used to get the Sybase ASA databases migrated to MS SQL Server Express databases. The software SQLWays is a software solution that automates most of the process. Because of the high levels of automation, the conversion results are very consistent. The output results are further verified by a large storehouse of test cases created by the agency. They have accumulated something like 40,000 use cases. Members of the organization assist in the conversion process that takes care of everything from DDL to server-side business logic and front-end application conversion. You could get a small set of data converted to check out the process adopted during the initial evaluation phase offered by the agency. Target platform migration tools can be included in the conversion process. The production phase of the process takes care of database schema/DDL, server side business logic procedures and triggers, front end applications and scripts, application conversion, etc.
Best practices of the target platform are followed, emulation of the legacy systems is not considered. Standalone SQL statements, functions, scripts and various code fragments are converted easily. This process generates readable and maintainable code. The SQLWays conducts comprehensive assessment and migration of embedded SQL statements and database API in various applications: Java, COBOL, PowerBuilder, C++, C#/VB.NET, ESQL, ASP, ASP.NET etc. It supports conversions between ESQL, ODBC, Oracle OCI, Oracle Pro*C, Sybase CT/LIB, and other interfaces. This is a very good product.
