Project planning and technical research are key to software
migrations. We've taken the experience and project plans from many

and DB2 Migration Starter Kits. A kit is an MS Project "template",
containing most migration tasks and links to IBM/ISV manuals,
conference presentations, etc. Accelerate your migration with an MSK!

Scripting language REXX suffers from the same ignorance as the
mainframe. To some, both are archaic technologies better left to

including how it can be used with Java.

better in terms of performance and ease of maintenance."
