Migration of legacy applications is a challenging task, even more when the target is a service oriented open platform such as J2EE, requiring reasoning about the legacy applications and understand the challenges and opportunities for a migration. This position paper presents the challenges in a VB to J2EE migration and suggests knowledge-base driven analyses to aid in the process.
