Even the best-developed and diligently maintained applications will eventually require renewal as time goes by.
This holds true for Uniface applications as well, which from time to time need thoughtful restructuring. The goal? To enhance their maintainability and expandability, ensuring they continue to serve your business effectively in the long run.

Every application, regardless of how expertly it’s developed and maintained, or the technology it’s built with, will eventually need updates over time. This includes Uniface applications, which sometimes need reorganization to enhance their maintainability and expandability.
Refactoring is a technique where we revise the entire application or sections of it. This process ranges from correcting minor details like punctuation to rebuilding substantial parts of the application. Refactoring can be necessary to address performance issues, enhance the reusability of components, or prepare the application for a migration.
A well-known term in our industry is ‘Spaghetti code’, referring to tangled or overly complicated code that’s difficult to maintain or understand. Refactoring can help transform this ‘Spaghetti code’ into a well-structured and efficient application.
A bit more detail
Intake of the application(s) and the context.
During this step we will collect all the information and data that is required to perform the next steps.
At this stage, we evaluate the impact that refactoring will have on your existing application. This step isn’t just about predicting the effects, but also crucially serves to ready the application for the forthcoming changes.
We carefully assess the current state of the application, considering its complexity, the extent of changes needed, and the interdependencies within the codebase. Based on these factors, we estimate the scope of the refactoring effort and the expected timelines for completion.
Our aim is to minimize disruption while ensuring that your application benefits from the necessary updates. By anticipating the impact, we can effectively plan the refactoring process, set accurate expectations, and ensure that your business operations continue smoothly throughout.
Beyond refactoring the repository, this stage presents an opportune moment to critically examine the deployment environment. We’re more than happy to provide guidance in this area to optimize your operations.
Please note, this is an optional step in the process. However, considering the full ecosystem of your application can often yield additional performance benefits.
