Companies with valuable business logic written in COBOL can now avoid costly rewrites and quickly respond to business need
Houston, TX (Vocus) March 10, 2010
eCube Systems®, a leading provider of tools and middleware products for enterprise systems, announced today that NXTera™ 6.0 High Performance RPC Middleware will include .Net, Java and Web service connector tools. These tools, collectively called NXTmake, enable existing COBOL business logic to be exposed as contemporary Java, .NET and Web services components.
“Companies with valuable business logic written in COBOL can now avoid costly rewrites and quickly respond to business need,” says Kevin Barnes President and CEO of eCube Systems. “Speed and responsiveness drive productivity. Bringing COBOL business logic to .Net, Java and Web service creates a powerful tactical advantage.”
Generic COBOL business logic or logic that incorporates legacy RPC middleware (such as Entera, EZRPC, ONC-RPC, and DCE), can use NXTera 6.0 to fully leverage proven COBOL code from contemporary middleware frameworks. These NXTera 6.0 tools are incorporated into the NXTera workbench in Eclipse or as utilities for use with Microsoft Visual Studio. The NXTera workbench provides an Eclipse-based integrated maintenance environment (IME) with powerful tools that simplify the software engineering maintenance and integration process.
In addition to the streamlined COBOL integration process, NXTera’s runtime architecture is fast, resilient, and fully scalable – easily handling increased demand as needed. This enterprise scale architecture provides superior performance and maintainability compared to other integration solutions, such as wrappering or the implementation of large enterprise integration frameworks.
NXTera’s NXTmake tool generates C#, Visual Basic.NET, Java, or Web services connectors for COBOL business logic in either Visual Studio or Eclipse – all in a few simple clicks. By leveraging NXTera 6.0, legacy services can now be deployed as contemporary Web services and easily integrated into browser-based applications, widgets, mash-ups and mobile applications.
Using NXTera 6.0 and the embedded workbench, existing Entera and RPC users can develop both Client/Server and Web services applications in JAVA, C#, C, COBOL, FORTRAN and PERL -- within a single GUI environment. NXTera workbench development will be supported on all the major development client platforms, including Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
The NXTera 6.0 server architecture is certified on Linux, Windows, zOS (zLinuz,) Solaris AIX, HP-UX, and HP OpenVMS. Additionally, NXTera supports both the Microsoft IIS and Apache AXIS2 Web services application stacks.
NXTera 6.0 is next generation multi-threaded RPC middleware that is fully compatible with the highly respected Entera™ middleware platform. NXTera is widely used in Fortune 1000 companies around the world.
