Application Upgrade Tool for Cognos 10.1

In case you are a heavy user of the Cognos 8 SDK and need assistance upgrading to the C10 SDK do note that this can be a heavy duty project depending on how you approach it. If you take the hard route to use the newer Axis libraries, it will be worthwhile to take a look at the "IBM Cognos SDK Application Upgrade Tool for Cognos 10.1". This tool is available as part of the SDK Accelerated Value Program (AVP).

A brief description:

"IBM Cognos 10.1 BI was developed using Axis 1.4. The advantage of upgrading the SDK Java application to Axis 1.4. is the performance improvements and issues addressed compared to Axis 1.1. The slight disadvantage is that the SDK application has to be upgraded with some syntax changes. This utility will help with upgrading the SDK code."
