Roadmap to Migration
Because this book deals with technical aspects of migration to Visual Basic .NET, ASP.NET, and Visual C++ .NET, not all of the steps presented in this section are discussed in detail in subsequent chapters; this section deals with the generic process approach rather than the technical approach. To have proper management of the migration project, the migration team should follow the basic steps presented in this section.
Migration from one technology to another involves four major steps, which ensure smooth migration to the new technology. This section takes a look at the steps involved in any migration process. They are applicable to all three migrations covered in this book: Visual Basic to Visual Basic .NET, ASP to ASP.NET, and Visual C++ to Visual C++ .NET.
Subsequent sections contain brief descriptions of various phases of the methodology in addition to the tasks and activities for each phase.
