eCube Systems, a leading provider of middleware modernization, integration and management solutions, announced the release of NXTera™ 7.1 High Performance RPC Middleware for SUSE Linux Enterprise 12. NXTera 7.1 is the official Borland sanctioned replacement middleware for Entera and includes modern tools for DevOps, advanced naming services with NAT support, JDBC database access for Entera servers, Eclipse workbench for COBOL, FORTRAN, C and C# language integration; and webservice enhancements to its generation of C, C# and JAVA services interfaces and clients.
With the addition of SUSE LinuxEnterprise 12, NXTera now supports the broadest OS platforms in the industry and can make inter-platform migration or legacy modernization much easier. NXTera Workbench is now integrated into the NXTware platform for seamless, distributed agile development and DevOps functionality with NXTmonitor. New server stub generators for BASIC, COBOL, C, C#, FORTRAN and Java enable enterprise developers to create multi-tier, multi-language applications with both RPC and Web Services connectors.
“As more platforms like Solaris, AIX and HP-UX disappear, developers turn to linux to meet their needs for agile development and NXTera continues to expand to different platforms”, says Kevin Barnes President and CEO of eCube Systems. “Extending the ROI of legacy applications to newer technologies and integration with new languages is key to helping drive IT innovation."
In addition to making NXTera developer commands available on SUSE linux, NXTera 7.1 simplifies legacy to contemporary integration projects with new Eclipse development tools. These include intelligent editors, a new Web services debugger, wsdebug; an automated IDL generation tool, defgen; and support for IBM COBOL, C#, and FORTRAN in the rpcmake IDL compiler for native stub generation.
With every new release, NXTera continues to expand its capabilities with new features and improved tooling. In NXTera 7.1 there are improvements to the integration with Eclipse Remote projects that generates C#, Visual Basic.NET, Java, or Web services connectors for C, COBOL, FORTRAN and BASIC business logic. The generated code can be used in Microsoft Visual Studio or Eclipse to create service interfaces to legacy business logic for use in enterprise, Web and mobile applications.
NXTera 7.1 servers run on and is certified for these latest versions of: Linux (Suse, Ubuntu and fedora), Windows 2003 and 2008, zOS (zLinux,) Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, IBM AS/400 and HP OpenVMS. NXTera 7.1 clients can run on Windows, Mac and most flavors of linux. Additionally, NXTera supports both the Microsoft, IBM and Apache AXIS2 Web services application stacks.
