Integration Using XML and Web Services Extends Life of Legacy Applications

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Apr. 24 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) - CA WORLD -- HostBridge Technology, the provider of HostBridge software for XML-enabling CICS, today announced that CA has certified the HostBridge integration software as interoperable with CA Telon Application Generator (CA Telon) and CA Gener/OL, enabling organizations to integrate their mainframe applications with Web services platforms, application servers, or other host applications.

(c) Send2PressRunning under CICS on the mainframe, HostBridge quickly and cost-effectively integrates proven mainframe business logic with modern platforms and interfaces. It allows Web server applications to invoke CA Telon and CA Gener/OL transactions using standard interfaces and returns data as XML documents or Web services in a service-oriented architecture (SOA).

CA Telon is used to design, generate and maintaining mission-critical COBOL and PL/1 applications. CA Gener/OL is used for developing high-volume CICS transactions.

"Customers want to Web-enable their mainframe applications in ways that are cost-effective and that readily accommodate change in the underlying code," said Maurice Donegan, vice president of marketing at CA. "Building on previous integration with CA Ideal, HostBridge has leveraged CA Telon and CA Gener/OL to deliver a solution that fulfills this demand."

HostBridge enables developers to integrate applications using field names from the CA Telon and CA Gener/OL applications rather than row/column coordinates from screen scraping. Web-based applications call these transactions without any changes to existing programs, which protects organizations from the risks and costs of altering their trusted mainframe code.

HostBridge has received the ca smart seal of excellence, which is awarded to products that integrate seamlessly with CA solutions, enabling customers to exploit best-in-class enterprise technologies while minimizing cost, time-to-benefit and risk.

"As with most good ideas, our integration with CA Telon was customer-driven," says Russ Teubner, CEO of HostBridge Technology. "Customers have been successfully using HostBridge with their CA Telon applications for several years and provide the proof that our solution works in a production environment. Following our certification with CA Ideal and CA Telon, we recognized that other mainframe development environments might also be difficult to integrate into modern XML and Web services architectures. So, we worked with CA to identify develop an easy integration solution for CA Gener/OL customers."
