We combine multiple dimensions of knowledge about APIs so that we can support API migration by wrapping or transformation in new ways. That is, we assess wrapper-based API re-implementations and provide guidance for migrating API methods. We demonstrate our approach with two major GUI APIs for the Java platform and two wrapper-based re-implementations for migrating between the GUI APIs.
