Bankhaus Metzler engaged fecher to migrate 25 business-critical applications from Gupta Team Developer to C#.NET. The decision to switch was made because Team Developer, as an interpreter, did not have an optimal run-time behavior, support for modern Windows functions was very limited and most importantly it was becoming increasingly difficult to find developers who could handle the older technology. The migration not only had to be performed without interrupting the applications' routine operations, to the extent possible it should also not effect ongoing development. This challenge was successfully met by using Ice Tea Group's tools, which are specialized for such cases.
What we now have is C# code that has been ported from Team Developer code. It runs smoothly and requires minimal maintenance by our team.
