For the latest version of Commerce Server 2007 Help, see the Microsoft Web site.

Migrating from Microsoft Commerce Server 2000, Microsoft Commerce Server 2002, or Microsoft Commerce Server 2002 Feature Pack 1 (FP1) to Commerce Server 2007 can be divided into three tasks: planning for migration, data migration, and site code migration.

Planning for migration involves learning which resources can be upgraded and which have been removed, knowing what data will be modified, and learning about the tools that are available to help you.

In Commerce Server 2007, data migration is performed by the Commerce Server 2007 Upgrade Wizard.

Before you run the Upgrade Wizard on a Commerce Server 2000 site, you must run the Data Warehouse migration tool to migrate the Data Warehouse resource. For information about using the Data Warehouse migration tool, see Data Warehouse Migration Tool.

This topic explains the data that the Upgrade Wizard modifies so that you know what changes are occurring and why.

When you want to do site code migration, you must rewrite side code for existing ASP-based sites. All sites operating on Commerce Server 2007 must be written in ASP.NET. Existing Commerce Server sites can be written in Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP) or Microsoft ASP.NET. You will need knowledge of the Component Object Model (COM) components in Commerce Server.


For an example of how to migrate from an application on Microsoft Commerce Server 2002 that is running the Commerce Server 2002 Starter Site to Microsoft Commerce Server 2007, see Commerce Server 2002 Starter Site Migration Example

This section includes a system-by-system comparison of the COM objects that are used in your existing site and their Microsoft .NET Framework counterpart. For frequently asked questions about the Commerce Server COM and the Commerce Server Class Library, see Planning Commerce Server 2007 Migration. Be aware that ASP.NET-based sites may require API changes because of a change in namespaces. Additional changes may also be required based on the resources that your site uses.
