Over the past 6 years eCube has built a track record of delivering solutions that enable legacy systems developed in COBOL and the C language to participate in service oriented architectures. Products, such as IBM CTG Gateway and the WebSphereESB, have been integrated in to NXTware IME to provide powerful additions to eCube’s product offerings and custom enterprise services. eCube's NXTware IME can be ordered with support for the IBM CICS Transaction Gateway. Features include:
- Creation new Java interfaces

(Requires NXTware IME for C/C++/COBOL tooling)
- Federation of multiple CICS/IMS based services
- Federation of CICS/IMS based services with CORBA and RPC services
- Integration of the above with SOAP/HTTP interfaces via AXIS

Tested SOA solution
eCube Systems has partnered with SOA Software, the leading provider of comprehensive SOA and Web services management, security, mediation and run-time governance solutions, to deliver CICS based service-oriented solutions. Particular focus is given to extending ROI and performance of existing mainframe applications that rely on IBM CICS with SOA's SOLA product.
SOLA is in use at companies like Merrill Lynch, where it enables IBM CICS applications to provide and consume Web Services. Thanks to the ease of use and efficiency of SOLA, Merrill estimates that it has saved at least $45,000,000, while making the firm more agile and improving the reliability of the environment.
SOLA is a great complement to eCube's expertise in evolving, integrating and extending the ROI of legacy systems.
