Oracle Forms to Java Swing Online Presentation

Demo presentation text:


Welcome to this demonstration of the migration tools provided by Ispirer Systems for Oracle Forms to Java Swing application conversion.

In this video, I’d like to show you how easily the conversion from Oracle Forms to Java Swing can be performed by Ispirer tools.

Before proceeding directly to the demo, I would like to say a few words about the Ispirer toolkit provided for automatic conversion and modernization. There are two graphical tools based on a command line tool called

• Ispirer Migration and Modernization Engine – it can be run in batch mode and can perform the automatic conversion of application code contained in scripts.

• Ispirer Migration Studio – a GUI tool oriented specifically to the conversion of a separate application script. It works with one script at a time.

• Ispirer Migration Commander – a GUI tool designed for the conversion of multiple files containing application code. It works with several scripts at a time.

And now let’s proceed to the presentation of the migration from Oracle Forms to Java Swing with the help of Ispirer Migration Commander and Ispirer Migration Studio tools.

Our source application that you can see on the screen shows data from a database. The first data block shows the first entry and in the second data block shows other entries with the same jobs. Also a report can be generated from the database. Let’s have a look at it.

Let`s start with Ispirer Migration Commander. First of all, we need to select source and target languages, our source language will be Oracle Forms, target language – respectively Java.

On the left side of the tool we should choose a source file for this migration and on the right – we’ll choose the folder where the migration results will be saved.

Once the file has been selected, we click the button Run and press OK.

The conversion process can take some seconds. As soon as it’s over, we get a certain class structure. Let’s open the source file and compare it with the migration results. That is the main class of this migration.

After the migration process has been completed, we can integrate the results into our Java project, open it in Eclipse IDE, compile it, and execute.

As you can see, the whole code has been compiled and as a result we get the same application. It generates the same report as our source application.

Now let`s have a look at the same code using Ispirer Migration Studio.

On the left side of the tool we can see our source file with indicated source and target languages – Oracle Forms and Java respectively. And we press the button Run. On the right side we can see the results of the migration. The results are identical to the results got with the help of Ispirer Migration Commander.

This is all information about the tools that our company provides for the conversion from Oracle Forms to Java Swing.

It is just a review, so if you need additional information please contact us, and we will be glad to assist you in your migration projects.

Thank you very much for your attention. Bye.
