About this Course

Code TPU8616S
Duration 2 Days

This two-day course provides the information needed to convert applications to run on the Integrity NonStop systems and the Integrity NonStop BladeSystem. The course starts with an overview of the hardware architectures and then covers program migration information for each of the main languages. Other topics include the debuggers that are available on the new systems including the new Native Inspect debugger, the new linker, the changes to the ETK, the EPE, and the new Code Coverage and Code Profiling tools. Hands-on labs are used at various points to provide reinforcement of the lecture.


  • Concepts and Facilities for NonStop Systems (U4147S) and
  • Experience with programming languages

Who Should Attend?

  • System designers
  • Application developers
  • Support personnel

Delegates will learn how to

  • Be familiar with the Integrity NonStop servers and the NonStop BladeSystem
  • Describe migration paths
  • Identify changed and discontinued products
  • Convert C/C , pTAL, and COBOL application programs
  • Describe the eld linker
  • Describe available program debuggers
  • Discuss changes to the Enterprise Toolkit (ETK)
  • Be familiar with NonStop Enterprise Plugins for Eclipse (EPE)
  • Describe the Code Coverage and Code Profiling tools

Benefits to you

  • Streamline application migration tasks and increase your productivity by knowing where and how the application needs to be adjusted and being familiar with how to utilize compilation and debugging utilities including the eld linker, Native Inspect, and Enterprise Plugins for Eclipse (EPE)
