Hi, I am not sure in which forum to post this question. hence request the moderators to kindly transfer to the right forum.
I have a porting project which involves code written in cobol, fortran etc that needs to be rewritten in Java/J2ee. Of course SOA is the buzzword these days where the business functions are exposed as webservices. But is there is a right way of architecting such an porting application? There are several parameters to be kept in mind. one is the entire code cannot be transferred to Java/j2ee since the legacy code involves 20 years of work. Hence some kind of adapter framework has to be used. Second is the justification to porting which will enable the business to expand in future without much change in hardware or software infrastructure. Any idea how to start about such a project?
Of course, I found a very beautiful couch. Definitely. And this tiny ad:
