Announcing Red Hat Application Migration Toolkit 4.1.0: Now with technical reports

[In case you aren’t following the Red Hat JBoss Middleware blog, we are reposting this article on developers.redhat.com.]

Red Hat Application Migration Toolkit (RHAMT) 4.1.0 has been released, and with it a new feature that I’d like to highlight in this article—Technology Reports.

If you’re not familiar with RHAMT, check out my previous article that introduces RHAMT and describes how you can use it to help with migration existing applications to a modern application platform by analyzing your code base.

Technology reports

This new feature in RHAMT provides an aggregate listing of the technologies used, grouped by function, for the analyzed applications. It shows how the technologies are distributed. After analysis has been performed, using this report hundreds of applications can be quickly compared. In addition, the size, number of libraries, and story point totals of each application are displayed, allowing you to quickly determine each application’s type from a single report, for example:

Application migration and modernization can be a daunting task. Not only do you have to update legacy applications with newer libraries and APIs, but often you must also address new frameworks, infrastructures, and architectures all while simultaneously keeping resources dedicated to new features and versions.

Red Hat Application Migration Toolkit (RHAMT), formerly known as Windup, provides a set of utilities for easing this process. Applications can be analyzed through a command-line interface (CLI), through a web-based interface, or directly inside Eclipse, allowing immediate modification of the source code.

These utilities allow you to quickly gain insights into thousands of your applications simultaneously. They identify migration challenges and code or dependencies shared between applications, and they accelerate making the necessary code changes to have your applications run in the latest middleware platforms.
