San Diego '99
Web Enabling OpenVMS Data and Applications
- Topic Area:
- Track: Open VMS
- Topic: Web Project Management
- Type: Weekend Seminar
09:00 AM Duration:
- John Apps & Phil Hudson
- Compaq Computer Corporation
- This team-led, day-long session will focus on implementing Internet
technologies as well as the tools and techniques available to allow
existing OpenVMS data and applications to participate in an e-business environment. We will concentrate on Web enabling both OpenVMS data and applications (in a Windows NT/OpenVMS or pure OpenVMS environment), highlighting how you can continue to exploit your back-end OpenVMS systems' high availability features.
This session will have heavy emphasis on how customers can exploit
their significant investments in OpenVMS systems and applications by reusing and extending these applications using state-of-the-art,
industry-standard, Internet integration technologies.
For customers considering the addition of Windows NT into their
environment, we will discuss how to design a rolling architecture that accommodates the integration of Windows NT into their OpenVMS
environment, keeping focused on customers' requirements for 24x365
availability. We will also cover how to ensure that this new,
integrated environment is scalable to accommodate the high
transaction rates and high number of concurrent users that will
likely occur when your application debuts on the Internet/intranet.
Various technologies will be discussed for implementation across
OpenVMS and Windows NT.
Topics covered will include:
- Overview of Web enabling technologies and solutions for OpenVMS
- Web enabling backend OpenVMS systems (RMS, DBMS, and Oracle Rdb
databases) using Universal Data Access tools (ISG Navigator).
- Interactive construction of COM wrappers for 3GL routines,
demonstrating the integration of an existing 3GL OpenVMS
application with standard component technology for Web or
Windows NT deployment (using Compaq BridgeWorks and other
- Implementing Web/Thin Client solutions with ACMS/DECforms
applications family products (TP Web Connector products and
DECforms Web Connector).
- Integrating COM-based design and development with MTS (Microsoft
Transaction Server) and existing OpenVMS systems.
Throughout the seminar, we will provide hands-on opportunities for
attendees to Web enable sample data and applications using the
technologies described above.
- Web enable existing OpenVMS data and applications for integration into a Windows NT
- Understand the intricacies of manually building a Web or COM
connection to existing 3GL applications, and see how an
automated tool such as BridgeWorks can simplify the construction
and maintenance of component connections.
- Understand how to use COM to wrap existing OpenVMS applications.
- Prerequisites for attendees:
