Migrating COBOL legacy systems to Java results in functional equivalent systems expressed in the new language, while the programming paradigm remains that of the old systems. The quality of translated code is therefore assumed to be inferior, if held to the standards of the target language’s paradigm. This paper presents an integrated toolchain enabling metricsbased comparisons of original and translated systems to substantiate or refute this hypothesis, characterize the change in code quality… CONTINUE READING
