NXTera: High Speed RPC Middleware Computing
Recently released, NXTera 6.1 is a powerful middleware product designed specifically to support high speed computing languages, such as C, C++, C#, COBOL, FORTRAN, and Java. It brings cross-platform development, fail-over and multi-threading to client/server and SOA applications running on LINUX, Windows, UNIX/zLinux and OpenVMS.
NXTera's RPC-based middleware provides powerfull intergration with SOA platforms, such as Windows Communication Fondation (WCF) and SOAP to deliver the performance and scalability demanding strategic applications require.

Improving RPC Distributed Development
NXTera is a middleware framework that allows the use of standard application development tools in the building of enterprise-class distributed applications -- internal, external and within the Cloud. NXTera middleware implements RPC-based services that automate and simplify key challenges specific distributed applications, such as:
- High-speed light-weight cross-platform communication
- High availability and scalability
- Rapid cross-language and tool development
- Flexible development of federated services
Using NXTera middleware, developers and architects can build secure multi-tiered business applications using a variety of development tools such as JAVA, COBOL, C, C++, C#, PASCAL/Delphi, Perl and a variety of scripting languages. Using NXTera, distributed applications can be built, modified and easily, integrated with legacy environments and new technologies, as they emerge.
Now with WCF support, NXTera and legacy Entera distributed applications can run as full participants in a SOA environment -- improving time-to-market and reducing costs.
High Performance Memory and Data Management
NXTera 6 is designed for speed. As a result its small footprint and high performance memory management, NXTera enjoys a 25-65% increase in performance over other RPC-based middleware solutions. Additionally, its high-speed data access mechanism has achieved up to a 45% increase in data throughput over Entera and other RPC-based platforms.
NXTera 6 feature highlights include:
- Simplified development with Eclipse-based tools
- Eclipse-based development, testing and Web Services integration
- Automated .NET, SOAP, REST and Java Web Services support
- Improved support for Virtualization with Network Address Translation
- Support For zLINUX on IBM zSeries (Contact Us)
- Runtime Management Tools -- NXTminder
- Updated support for Delphi, Powerbuilder and VB Entera applications
- New data serialization support using Protocol Buffers developed by Google,
- Robust and fast RPC marshalling engine
- NXTera 6.0 is certified on zLinux, Redhat, Suse, MacOS/X, OpenVMS, Irix and all contemporary versions of UNIX
Universal Legacy RPC solution
With NXTera middleware, companies are able to extend the value of their legacy investment in COBOL, C/C++ business logic as well as RPC-based applications. With NXTera middleware tools, developers can deliver solutions with shorter and less expensive development cycles. Applications developed with other middleware like Entera, DCE, TCP-IP, EZ-RPC and ONC-RPC can easily be upgraded to NXTera.
Platform Support Includes: HP-UX, AIX, SOLARIS, OpenVMS, Irix and all contemporary versions of UNIX/LINUX.
Entera Middleware Replacement and Upgrade
NXTera is an up-to-date plug-and-play replacement for the Entera middleware product Entera. NXTera builds on Entera and delivers major performance improvements. These performance improvements include better memory management, POSIX threads implementation and 40% quicker data access.
NXTera is a complete, transparent and API compatible replacement for Entera. eCube supports existing Entera implementations and enhances them with NXTera's support for Java and . new middleware standards like SOAP, XML, Web Services and messaging/ESB.
