Software AG enhanced its ApplinX legacy modernization software, including support for the open source Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE), the Fujitsu-Siemens BS2000/OSD operating system, as well as support for Arabic, Farsi and Turkish. The enhancements to ApplinX will further ease the task of creating standard programmatic components (including Web screens and Web services) from legacy systems that can be readily incorporated into modern environments such as Java, .NET and enterprise portals.
Capitalizing on legacy systems' longstanding strengths of reliability, security and high performance, ApplinX provides the ability to preserve and extend legacy applications and integrate them into Web services and SOA environments. ApplinX lets users combine multiple screens into a single Web page, and automatically generates
Web components and Web services based upon XML, SOAP and WSDL standards.
Furthermore, ApplinX’ user-friendly composing and administration tools enable developers to achieve rapid results using their existing Java and/or .NET programming skills.
Additional enhancements include support for Natural data uploads and downloads, the ability to make global changes to a group of screens, instant extensions, and support for HTML Document Object Model (DOM).
The company says that the technology conforms to virtually any organization's pre-defined infrastructure and standards. ApplinX can be deployed within any J2EE application server environment and communicates with a comprehensive set of legacy platforms, including the zSeries and IBM mainframe (3270),
iSeries - former AS/400 (5250), Unisys (T27), Fujitsu (6680), Natural UNIX, HP3000, Tandem (6530), and now Siemens OSD/BS2000 (9750).
Software AG provides a real-time single view of strategic business information by integrating applications and systems, in addition to modernizing mainframe and open system IT environments. Its offerings are based on the product families Adabas, Natural, EntireX and Tamino.
