Hi All,

We want to convert our existing wmb projects to iib , we would like to develop automation scripts to do the conversation (ie applications or Libraries )

We have option is present in toolkit as using Convert to application or library > Analyze and convert multiple projects.

But just wonder tis there any command to perform the same ?

Is it good idea to play with .project file by changing the <natures> as com.ibm.etools.msgbroker.tooling.applicationNature and add builders in <buildCommand> and copy the resources using scripting ?

Are we missing anything or introducing any risk 

Appreciate your feed back

AFAIK, there is no automation tool available to do this.

I'd bite my lip and get on and do it. You only have to do it once.

If there are a lot of flows then just do a bit at a time over several days (or longer).

Hmm.. there is no automation tool AFAIK as well .
but my question is it good idea to modify manually .project file(opposed to toll will manage the updates) to achieve this ?
as we know they are now introducing application.descriptor and library.descriptor in new versions .
just wonder any impact in I future if we do manual modifications to .project file

Leave the .project file alone.
When you do the migration and change a component to a library the .project file will get updated.

I have never had to edit the .project file as part of a migration from V7 to V9/10.

I think you need to do some trial migrations then you will find out for yourself. you know that thing called 'Proof of concept'(POC).
It will save you a lot of time. IBM has even made a Developer version available for you.

Even if there were a magic button that converted all of your flows at once...
You still need to take this opportunity to review the business logic and requirements of the flows. If you've been running the same code on v7 for a long time, it's fairly likely that there is a backlog of unimplemented features and business requirments.

Taking the time to migrate and review each set of flows for a particular business process will add a lot more value than the time costs.

Thank you smdavies99 and mqjeff for your inputs

yes agree we never had to edit the .project file as part of a migration from V7 to V9/10 toolkit will automatically updated required buildCommand s.

btw we tested with changing .project file without using toolkit as part of automation script while converting to application ,seems working , but worried as it is not suggested options from IBM mentioned in

Play .project file is not good idea. I think so. You can open your projects normally

After, you can fix red comment in your workspace by the way: From Project ( Menu) --> clean those projects and rebuild them

Why? Isn't what was suggested and what you did good enough? Remember that this is a one time only job.
Please let us know what you don't like?
