Software AG, Inc. announced enhancements for its ApplinX legacy modernization software, including support for the open source Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE), the Fujitsu-Siemens BS2000/OSD operating system, as well as Arabic, Farsi and Turkish languages.
The enhancements to ApplinX will further ease the task of creating standard programmatic components (including Web screens and Web services) from legacy systems that can be readily incorporated into modern environments such as Java, .NET and enterprise portals, according to Software AG.
Capitalizing on legacy systems' longstanding strengths of reliability, security and high performance, ApplinX provides the ability to preserve and extend legacy applications and integrate them into Web services and SOA environments. ApplinX lets users combine multiple screens into a single Web page, and automatically generates Web components and Web services based upon XML, SOAP and WSDL standards. Furthermore, ApplinX' user-friendly composing and administration tools enable developers to achieve rapid results using their existing Java and/or .NET programming skills.
"With the new version of ApplinX we continue to help customers around the world drive their legacy systems forward," said Joe Gentry, Vice President of Enterprise Transaction Systems for Software AG. "Our support for a wide variety of legacy systems within a single modernization product gives our customers the power to adapt, while ApplinX's no-coding, point-and-click approach allows developers with no legacy skills whatsoever to achieve rapid modernization results within weeks or even days."
