HP Software Transition Kits contain tools and documentation to help you transition from older to newer versions of HP-UX, from Tru64 UNIX to HP-UX, from Solaris to HP-UX, or from Linux to HP-UX.

The Solaris to HP-UX STK assists you with questions such as:

  • How can I transition my software from Solaris to HP-UX on Itanium Processor Family (IPF), the new Intel and HP architecture?
  • What new features does the latest HP-UX release offer, and how can I take advantage of them?
  • Do I want a 32-bit or 64-bit version of my software?

The STK consists of:

  • A set of file scanning tools with associated database and information, which check source files, makefiles, and scripts for identifiers which may indicate transition problems. These tools can also identify opportunities for using enhanced HP-UX features.
  • A library of reference documents and porting guides
  • Man pages (reference pages) or links to man pages on HP Web sites
  • A search engine which searches the man pages, impacts and documents

Prerequisites for using this STK

You should be familiar with the following:
  • The source and target platform operating systems
  • Shell scripts
  • Web browsers

If you are transitioning source code, your application must already be running correctly on your source platform.

In addition, you should be familiar with:

  • The source code you are transitioning
  • Software development processes (editing, compiling, debugging, and testing)
  • The programming language(s) in which your source code is written
