eCube Systems Announces NXTera 6.5 RPC Middleware Tools in NXTware Remote for OpenVMS and Linux

NXTera 6.5 additions of FORTRAN, BASIC and C# to COBOL, C/C++, python, perl and java languages making it the most language diverse, high performance RPC middleware available. NXTera 6.5 now makes it easy for OpenVMS and linux users with the same agile development and Web Services environment for their 3GL applications.

Houston, Texas. August 29, 2016

eCube Systems, a leading provider of middleware modernization, integration and management solutions, announced the release of NXTera™ 6.5 High Performance RPC Middleware. NXTera 6.5 includes an all JAVA broker with NAT support, JDBC database access for Entera servers, Eclipse tools for COBOL, FORTRAN, BASIC and C# language integration; and enhancements to its generation of C# and JAVA services interfaces and clients.

In addition to Linux, NXTera now supports OpenVMS and can make migration or legacy modernization on that platform much easier. NXTera Workbench is now integrated into NXTware Remote for seamless agile development functionality. New server stub generators for BASIC, COBOL, C, FORTRAN and Java enable OpenVMS developers to create multi-tier, multi-language applications with both RPC and Web Services connectors.

"As more developers need agile development tools on multiple platforms, NXTera continues to expand to different platforms," says Kevin Barnes, President and CEO of eCube Systems. "Extending inter-operation between newer technologies and legacy languages is the key to helping drive IT innovation."

By integrating NXTera middleware into NXTware Remote on OpenVMS, NXTera 6.5 simplifies legacy to contemporary integration projects with new Eclipse development tools. These include 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. Additionally, although it does not leverage native stub generation for BASIC, NXTera 6.5 is the first version to officially support BASIC integration with customized stubs and implementation patterns for BASIC language application integration.

With every new release, NXTera continues to expand its capabilities with new features and improved tooling. In NXTera 6.5 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 6.5 server runs on and is certified for the latest versions of: Linux (Redhat, Suse, Ubuntu and fedora), Windows, zOS (zLinux,) Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and HP OpenVMS. Additionally, NXTera supports both the Microsoft, IBM and Apache AXIS2 Web services application stacks.

The features described in this release available in pre-release to select customer and under consulting engagements. For more information, contact eCube Sales at: 866.493.4224 Ext 1.
