NXTera

High-Speed Middleware

NXTera is a high-speed middleware for extending RPC-based middleware applications. It provides legacy and contemporary middleware users modern tools that integrate MQ, .NET, Java, and WebServices together.

Overview

NXTera is a high-speed multiplatform middleware for integrating RPC and MOM-based middleware applications. It provides legacy and contemporary middleware users modern tools that extend their capabilities by simplifying:

  • Java and Web Service integration
  • .NET/WCF support
  • MQ application integration
  • Modern development and DevOps best practices implementation (Jenkins integration)
  • Synchronous and asynchronous middleware interoperability
  • Modern SQL, NoSQL, and in-memory database integration
  • FORTRAN, C, COBOL, PASCAL integration with contemporary platforms

NXTera's protocol independent middleware integrates RPC-based middleware such as: Entera, EZ-RCP, JAX-RPC, XML-RPC, DCE, Tuxedo with .NET, MQ, AMQP and GSOAP to name a few.

Improving legacy distributed development

NXTera is a middleware framework that allows the use of standard rapid application development tools in the building of enterprise-class distributed applications. NXTera Data Access Engine implements services that enable database vendor independence by moving the user away from vendor specific APIs. In addition, the Data Access Engine improves security by preventing storing of static strings in the application executables. By moving the SQL to IDL files, changing database SQL is made easier because applications don't have to be recompiled, thereby automating and simplifying many of the challenges involved in developing and deploying distributed applications, such as:

  • Cross-database communications
  • Secure database access
  • Maintenance of database access applications

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++, Visual Basic, Delphi and other 4GLs. With NXTera, distributed applications can be built, modified, and easily integrated with legacy environments (and new technologies) as they emerge.

Flexible Middleware for transaction processing

NXTera FX is a powerful middleware transaction processing product designed specifically to support legacy development languages and platforms, such as C, C++, Java, COBOL, FORTRAN. It brings the power of multi-threading and connection pooling to legacy systems development to increase their performance and improve scalability.

NXTera FX middleware tools can also be used to build new applications or modernize applications built on RPC-based middleware like DCE, Tuxedo, NobleNet, or Entera with improved ease of development and major performance improvements.

Improving legacy transaction processing

NXTera FX is a middleware framework that allows the use of multi-database transaction processing in all the languages supported by NXTera. NXTera FX has standard rapid application development tools (sqlmake, rpcmake, rpcdebug, etc.) in the building of enterprise-class distributed transaction processing applications. NXTera FX middleware implements services that automate and simplify many of the challenges involved in developing and deploying distributed applications, such as:

  • Cross-platform communications
  • Secure communication services
  • Cross-language and development tool integration

Using NXTera FX middleware, developers and architects can build secure multi-tiered business applications using a variety of development tools such as JAVA, COBOL, C, C++, Visual Basic, Delphi and other 4GLs. With NXTera distributed applications can be built, modified and easily, integrated with legacy environments, and new technologies, as they emerge.

Testimonials

"We see real value in the NXTera Provider Bundle. Old and unsupported components are one of the biggest challenges we face when we update legacy Delphi applications. NXTera Provider replaces the old Entera provider in existing applications and works with Delphi XE to create new high-speed applications. Whether working on projects in Latin or North America, we'll offer eCube's NXTera Provider as part of our Delphi/C++Builder modernization solutions."

— Amandio Aguiar, Operations Director at Incode Software, an Embarcadero Partner in Brazil

"NXTera's ability to extend legacy 3GLs to .NET will allow its users to fully leverage the power of Microsoft WCF and the flexibility provided by Microsoft-centric tools like Sentinet, Nevatech’s lightweight and scalable API management platform. NXTera services can now be governed, orchestrated and mediated like any other .NET, SOAP or REST service."

— Andrew Slivker, CEO of Nevatech

"NXTera's support for Ingres makes it easier for open source developers and enterprises committed to high-speed computing to engineer fast multi-tiered applications based on Ingres Database 9.2. We see Ingres and eCube technology delivering real benefits in our key markets of government, sciences, manufacturing, and media."

— Bill Maimone, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Engineering at Ingres
