Looking for a estimate, of the effort to convert Easytrieve programs to run on z/OS from our z/VSE environment.
Easy? just copy the code.
Moderate? copy the code and make an adjustment here and there
Hard? Analyzation of the existing environment to find programs that will not port over.
Release : 6.3
Component : CA EASYTRIEVE REPORT GEN
Outside of some parameters, there is no difference in the Easytrieve+ language
between the two operating systems when the Easytrieve+ program is compiled on both
environments with same EZT+ release. (In most instances, this will not be the case, since z/VSE is at Easytrieve R6.3.
Following are the procedures to migrate:
1. Install Easytrieve+ 11.6 on z/OS.
2. Adapt the JCl of the batch jobs manually from a/VSE to
z/OS syntax. There is no convertibility-help available for it.
3. If the Easytrieve+ programs on z/VSE were compiled with same Easytrieve+ release that is
installed on z/OS, then just move the compiled phases from z/VSE to z/OS.
4. If the Easytrieve+ programs on z/VSE were compiled with a different Easytrieve+ release than were
installed on z/OS, the programs will have to be recompiled again,
under new operating system using the new R11.6 Easytrieve+ libraries.
Moderate; Recompile the code and make any necessary adjustments.
