HP 3K migration - RPG and VPLUS


We are looking for a solution to migrate RPG II applictions and VPLUS screens to HP 9000 platform. The objective is to have a one-to-one migration to HP9K.

Please let us know if
1. there are conversion tools available to move from RPG II to the latest version of RPG and what is the automation conversion percentage ?
2. if the above is not available, are there reliable tools from RPG II to COBOL ?
3. What is the best alternative for the VPLUS screens on HP9K ? We would like to have as little re-development as possible, preferably with a tool.

Another good source of data would be at Interex, the International Association of HP Computing Users. At last years HPWorld conference, there were several very good sessions on migration. Interex can be found at www,
