How It Works

Download

1. Download and install the tool

To get started with application modernization, you need to install nGLFly Wizard which is a part of Ispirer Toolkit. Register our migration tool with a license key that specifies the period of use, source language, target language, and code volume. NGLFly Wizard runs on Windows from Windows 10, Windows 2016 up to the latest version. The key and links to install the toolkit are automatically sent to your mailbox once you submit a request for a free demo license on our website.

Connect

2. Connect to a source application

NGLFly Wizard works with files containing source code. A user determines the files to migrate before the conversion begins. This process is simplified for Delphi, VB, C/C++, and COBOL through detection of project files (e.g. .dpr or .vbp) and automatic selection of linked files.

Migrate

3. Migrate your application

NGLFly Wizard automates the entire application migration between different programming languages. After selecting the files to be migrated, a user has to specify the migration settings. Then the tool analyzes all the selected files, determines all variables and functions, and starts automated migration.

Results analysis

4. Migration results analysis

Several factors determine the migration outcome including code features, source and target technologies. For a seamless conversion of specific code, we recommend using Ispirer Toolkit customization, which significantly reduces the number of errors and increases the automation level. After the conversion, the migration tool generates a final report that helps to check out and correct errors if any. Unique features of source code sometimes require manual correction performed by our experts. The reports help determine the amount of manual adjustments to be made and allow to achieve optimal migration results.

Why NGLFly Wizard?

Smart migration core

NGLFly migration tool is based on an intelligent proprietary system that analyzes data types, relationships between objects, and reserved words and even code structures that do not have any equivalents in a target technology. This ensures high quality of application migration and reduces the amount of manual code adjustments.

Smart Core

Cost effective solution

Cost effective

NGLFly Wizard automates the process of application modernization that significantly reduces migration time and associated costs. It keeps a client’s involvement in the project to a minimum, thus cutting down expenses even further.

Customize all features of migration

In order to meet the requirements of each specific project, we provide the tool customization options. By adjusting our migration tool to the source system specifics, we can maximize the level of automation. Essentially, it speeds up application modernization considerably.

Customization

New opportunities with web architecture

No bound migration

NGLFly Wizard supports several options for working with the architecture. NGLFly Wizard can migrate desktop applications written in Delphi, Informix 4GL, and PowerBuilder into web applications written in JavaScript, Java, C#, Python, etc.

Updated application with no limitations

With our tool, you no longer have to deal with the problems associated with an old application. As a result of an application modernization, you get it in a new language without any middleware required after the migration.

Check process

Maintainable code result

Risk-free

Sometimes the source and target technologies are too different, as in the case of COBOL and Java. To handle such migrations, we've developed special frameworks that make it possible to significantly simplify the code generated by the tool. In addition to nGLFly, frameworks are available at no additional charge.

Expert support

Often, migrations are complicated and cause a number of issues. For this reason, Ispirer application migration tool always comes in a package with expert support. Ispirer support agents are always available for helping you with the tool configuration or handling any issues in a timely manner.

Support

Data protection

Data protection

No Internet connection is required for an application modernization with nGLFly Wizard. The software does not transfer data to third parties, does not modify the original system and works with read-only privileges. Data safety is guaranteed.

Free assessment

An assessment of the migration project determines its complexity and provides a client with an implementation timeline and cost estimation. You can assess your application yourself - the tool is free and available for download.
