This IBM Redbooks publication will help you to migrate Net.Commerce solutions from distributed platforms (defined in this book as Windows NT and UNIX) to OS/390. This publication is intended to help project managers and technical specialists who are working with Net.Commerce understand the tasks involved with the migration of Net.Commerce for Windows NT or UNIX to Net.Commerce for OS/390.
First, we introduce Net.Commerce for OS/390 and the project steps required for a migration from the distributed platform solutions. This will be especially useful for business and project managers with responsibility for the success of the migration.
Next, we highlight the differences between the OS/390 and distributed platforms. Information about general migration considerations and compatibility issues are discussed.
Migrating the central part of any Net.Commerce solution - the catalog database (DB2) - is described. The differences in developing Net.Commerce customized code on the OS/390 and distributed platforms are also discussed.
