We had nearly 50 MB’s of VB.Net code to convert. The code effected many development teams in different departments within the enterprise.
Converting all of this code to C# was a daunting task, one that we could not consider doing manually. We found out that almost no tool can do this job without a hitch. Some tools that appeared to work well, made their own “Decisions” about the original intent of the code. Sometimes right, sometimes not so right.
We needed a product that didn’t just convert the code, but also gave us statistics, reports and drill down analysis.
We intensively tested 6 products, and VBConversions’ VB.Net to C# Converter had the richest feature set, reporting tools, analysis and recording options. It converted the code at or above the 99.5 % rate, and gave excellent feedback suggestions and reports how where errors did occur, and what to do to fix them.
In short, all things considered, this is absolutely the best tool for the job.
It made the job of converting this code a relatively minor task in the project timeline, letting us move on to the job of extending this code into the SOA – Web Services Architecture we are moving it to.
