I have a GUI running on Solaris 2.x.  The interface is written in Xview.  I would like to port it to NT while retaining the source code as much as possible.  Has someone done this and what did you do? scrap everything and rewrite with a cross platform GUI or use a company like DataFocus?

Thanks much.

Yes, I have done something similar. You need to scrap everything GUI-related except the event callbacks. You will accomplish the same ting in a fraction of the lines of code with Java. I highly reccomend that you start with the current version of the Java Development Kit (jdk1.1.1). If you use the old version (jdk1.0.2) the event handling logic is very inefficient; the new event model is very much like X with callbacks.

WRT crossplatform GUI Java does this for free :-)

I can't comment on DataFocus because I've never done business with them.
