 Migration Project Configuration Files

A Migration Project File contains the settings and a list of migration units that you wish to process as a coherent set.

  2. Task Record Format

 Migration Project Files

A Migration Project document is an XML file with *.gmproj extension.

A Migration Project is created using the Migration Project Setup form as described in the Preparation section of this guide.

A Migration Project file contains two types of information:

  • migration settings
  • a list of migration tasks.
Here is an example of a project file for one of the migrations discussed in the samples section -- Interop1_csh.gmProj:
   <BatchCommands>Author Interop Assemblies,Author Interface Descriptions,Run Translation,Deploy Translation,Build Translation,</BatchCommands>
   <TaskList><![CDATA[ ... Task List Data ... ]]></TaskList>
The settings stored with the Migration Project are initially set when you create the project file as discussed the Preparation section. The settings in a Migration Project file include the following:

Element Description
MigType Migration Type: VBP or WEB.

DevEnv Target IDE: VS2005 or VS2008.

ProjFolder Workspace Root Folder: this folder will contain Migration Project-specific folders to contain files such as logs, Configuration Files, and reports.

DeployFolder Deployment Root Folder: this folder will receive deployments of migrated code. The deployment folder can be defined in terms of application variables. For example, to make the deployment folder a child of the workspace set DeployFolder to something like this

    %ProjFolder%\deploy (this is the default)

To make the deploy folder relative to the location of the migration unit, set DeployFolder to something like this

    %SrcFolder%\.. (this will create target project folders next to the source folders)

See the discussion of Deployment for more information on target project folder naming conventions.

TlbSearchPath TypeLib Search Path. This is a semicolon delimited list of folders to use to find COM components that are not registered.

VirtualRootFolder Virtual Root Folder: this folder is used as the "VirtualRoot" when resolving #includes in ASP Site migrations. Not used by VBP migrations.

TaskFilter Task Filter: a sequence of pipe-delimited wild-card patterns that define which migration tasks to display in the gmStudio UI.
This element is maintained by the [Filter Dialog] in gmStudio.
BatchCommands Command List: a comma-delimited list of operations to be performed when the user clicks the Batch Button. This element is maintained by the [Batch Control] Dialog in gmStudio.

TaskList Task List: The list of Migration tasks associated with the migration project.

The task lists stored with each Migration Project describes a collection of Migration Units (e.g., VBPs or ASP pages). Each item in the task list contains about 20 pieces of data that describe the nature and status of a migration unit.

Migration Tasks are added on the Migration Project setup form. Tasks may be removed using the Migration Task Context Menu. Individual tasks may be edited on the [Edit] display of the [Information] Panel. gmStudio can also help you edit and load a task list as a tab-delimited file.

 Task Record Format

Task records are stored as a block of tab-delimited text in the Migration Project files.

Each task record contains the following fields:

Field Description
BldPath Path of build product

BldType Type of build product (VBP:Exe|OleDll|OleExe|Control or WEB:PULP|INCLUDE|PAGE)

LastMsg Last status message

LibRegd Referenced COM components are registered (READY|NOTFOUND)

MigName Name of parent migration project

NetBlds .NET Build Status (SUCCESS|FAIL)

NetLang Target .NET Language (csh|vbn)

NetSize Source LOC for .NET (includes RESX, CODE, PROJ)

RefStat Interface description file status (see LibStat Flags)

SrcBlds VB6 Build Status (SUCCESS|FAIL)

SrcFile Name of migration unit source file

SrcFldr Location of migration unit source file (Vbp or Web content)

SrcName Unique identifier of the task within the migration project

SrcOrdr Task build order based on VBP references or ASP #includes

SrcSize Source LOC for VBP/ASP (may be negative if files are missing)

SrcType Type of migration unit (VBP|WEB|XML)

TScript Translation script template name

TaskTag Task Tag: a short string used to differentiate different types of migration tasks; for example for different migration configurations

TrnStat Translation Status (SUCCESS|WARN|ERROR|ABEND)

UsrCmds User command script to run after key processing steps translation, deployment, or build (optional). See User Batch Command Script in this section.

UsrCmnt User-Defined Comment for filtering and tracking (optional)

UsrDesc User-Defined Description of Task (optional)
