how to port an application

Postby rperrones » Tue Mar 25, 2008 9:25 pm

Hi,

i would like to know where i can find instructions on how to porting an applicaton to qnx6? is there a tutorial or any documentation to guide this task? I need to run CIAO component middleware (http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt/CIAO.html) on qnx, and i will try to use QNX Momentics Developement Suite 6.3.2 to port it

Thanks
Ricardo

There is no universal porting guide; however, CIAO should be a fairly straightforward port as long as you use gcc 4.2.1 (http://community.qnx.com/sf/projects/toolchain - follow the instructions to get the 4.2.1 preview).

If you prefer, these guys supposedly offer commercial support for CIAO on QNX...

HI,

I have an application written in Visual Basic. Is there any simple way of porting this application to QNX?
Or will it have to be re-written in a language such as C or C++?

thanks
Alex

Sure, you have to compile your app with qcc/gcc compiler.

Yes you will have to re-write it. Visual Basic is a Microsoft creation and follows no standard that I'm aware of.

I would re-write it from scratch though ;-)
