Abstract
The purpose of this Phase I SBIR is to develop a non-translator-based, language-independent methodology and toolset architectural design for legacy code modernization. The methodology proposed build models of the application and then analyzes them using to ensure that they properly represent the software as it actually runs on the platform and in the environment to which it is targeted. The methodology relies on aspects to capture processor/platform dependencies and domain models for a determination of which functions it makes sense to carryover for redesign. The utility and effectiveness of the methodology will be verified during Phase I through the use of a pilot project. Correspondence between the actual code and the modernized software will be demonstrated at least in part prior to Phase II when a more extensive proof-of-concept will be attempted.
