Houston, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) April 14, 2011
Zephyr is pleased to announce the support of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 with its PASSPORT Host Integration Objects (HIO) software. PASSPORT HIO offers a programmatic method of integrating 3270 and 5250 legacy applications with .NET and other web or server-based applications.
For many large organizations, mission-critical applications continue to be hosted on IBM System z (mainframes) and IBM System i (AS/400) servers. Secure, reliable access to these applications is essential and the Zephyr PASSPORT HIO software offers best-of-breed communication between Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and these important legacy platforms.
The Zephyr PASSPORT HIO legacy integration software has been tested with Windows Server 2008 R2 and found to be fully compatible. PASSPORT HIO includes a secure TN3270E and TN5250E communications module, an Object API, documentation and sample C# and C++ integration source code.
With PASSPORT HIO, 3270 and 5250 host screens can be used as an API to quickly integrate legacy applications using a low cost, low risk integration model. Despite its simple approach, non-intrusive integration at the application layer is well proven and can be very reliable.
