Generating Wrappers for Command Line Programs: The Cal-Aggie Wrap-O-Matic Project
Software developers writing new software have strong incentives to make their products compliant to standards such as corba, com, and JavaBeans. Standardscompliance facilitates inter-operability, componentbased software assembly, and software reuse, thus leading to improved quality and productivity. Legacy software, on the other hand, is usually monolithic, and hard to maintain and adapt. Many organizations, saddled with entrenched legacy software, are confronted with the need to integrate legacy assets into more modern, distributed, componentized systems that provide critical business services. Thus wrapping legacy systems for inter-operability has been an area of considerable interest. Wrappers are usually constructed by hand, which can be costly and error-prone. In this paper, we specifically target command-line oriented legacy systems, and describe a tool framework that automates away some of the drudgery of constructing wrappers for these systems. We describe the Cal-Aggie Wrap-...
