Developing a Virtual Environment: Old Software, New Hardware
CABEM develops a virtual environment to allow Autonet software, an older but still popular data acquisition software to run on new hardware, and interface with the TRM application for modern requirements such as database management, backup and web deployment.
The Autonet software runs unmodified in a virtual machine which emulates a simple PC with standard screen, memory, and accessories. The virtual machine screen keyboard and mouse are operable through a standard monitor, keyboard and mouse attached to the computer system running the application or over the network from a java plug-in enabled web browser. The Autonet software is unmodified and maintains its original software license requirements.
