  1. Lucas, As someone who is generous enough to share your ideas and lead discussions about Oracle Forms and Java technologies, you should be aware of our new client/server code translation software. Please excuse the unrequested email; I hope you find the content newsworthy. Last week we released Evo, an Oracle Forms code analysis and translation tool, which helps companies who find it cost- and time-prohibitive to migrate away from Oracle Forms client/server applications to a modern, multi-tiered structure in Java/J2EE. Evo is a pc-based tool that: – Accelerates Forms and PL/SQL code migration to Java/J2EE through a next-generation code translation engine. – Automatically analyzes the Form into user-interface, business-logic, and data-access layers. – Provides a detailed report of the legacy application’s code structure, including complexities which require further definition before they can be machine-translated. – Uniquely allows a developer to customize the translation engine before it goes to work. – Clearly identifies duplicate functions with similar business logic and allows you to consolidate them to create a true multi-tier architecture. Evo leverages Oracle Corporation’s Application Development Framework (ADF) and Industrial Telnet Services (ITS) to enable the effective conversion of character-based applications to a pure J2EE compliant architecture. It can be used by any developer, in any IDE. There are no proprietary components. For more information, please visit: Adam Greenberg Marketing Manager Vgo Software
