VB Migration asst ships
REAL Software has launched its new VB Migration Assistant, a tool for transferring software from Visual Basic to REALbasic code. REALbasic is a cross-platform software development application that can generate software from small utilities to enterprise-level applications. The new VB Migration assistant automates the transfer of Visual Basic 5 and VB 6 projects into REALbasic, avoiding numerous manual copy and past cycles.
The VB Migration Assistant can map VB controls to REALbasic controls and transfer forms, classes and modules into a REALbasic task. Also, the assistant copies over codes and comments them out, allowing users to convert code one method at a time.
VB Migration Assistant is available now for download at REAL's site, in Mac, Windows and Linux versions. REALbasic is $100 for a personal edition, $300 for a cross-platform edition and is available as REAL Studio for full-time developers for $1000.
