Dear Experts,

I believe I've asked a similar question somewhere but I can not find the question on EE.

Ok but let me try again.
I am looking for a way to convert / port RAD (Delphi) application to VB 2008 .NET.
Is there any tools that can assist me in this challenge?

If your application is Delphi.NET then you can use this tool: http://www.red-gate.com/products/reflector/ to decompile it to VB.NET. Of course, some changes wil be required, but it is not so hard then.
If your application is not Delphi.NET one then it is better to convert it before and the use Reflector.

The same (just open it in any Delphi .NET (D8>)). Unfortunatly there is no other easy way to convert it (at least I have not seen such tool). Of course, if your application calls low-leve functions then it may be a problem. But if it is just UI and Databases then it may be converted easy.

What will happen with your database?
For example, if I use Firebird in Delphi .NET will that be converting to VB .NET using the Firebird database etc...
Will db related code be working as well irrespective of what db I am using?
