Rocket Software Supports System i SOA Integration


Rocket Software, a developer of enterprise modernization and SOA integration products, announced support for IBM Rational Open Access: RPG Edition for the IBM i platform. Open Access: RPG Edition decouples application business logic from the 5250 screen layer and enables RPG developers to create new, non-screen-based access to RPG application functions.

ebizQ received the following:

Rocket leverages this new functionality in LegaSuite Integration, the company's SOA integration development tool for IBM i and other critical business systems. The combination of LegaSuite and Open Access: RPG Edition enables RPG developers to turn traditional RPG applications into high-performance, strategic SOA services that can be used by any SOA-compliant application or platform.

"Open Access: RPG Edition creates tremendous opportunity for our IBM i clients to extend their existing applications to new devices and services. Rocket's LegaSuite Integration products provide the development tooling to put Open Access: RPG Edition to work," said Ian Jarman, IBM manager for IBM i.

"We have a significant installed base of customers who rely on the IBM i platform, so enhancing our LegaSuite products to support Open Access: RPG Edition is key to helping organizations offer new, high-performance SaaS and cloud capabilities while preserving their investment in the IBM i," said Sam Elias, Business Area Executive Worldwide for Seagull products at Rocket Software. "We are excited about IBM's Open Access: RPG Edition offering because it brings RPG into the future."

LegaSuite now provides a roadmap for making existing RPG functions accessible to SaaS and cloud environments by selectively SOA-enabling application functions. LegaSuite with Open Access: RPG Edition takes the buffer of information from the RPG program and hands it off to the LegaSuite Integration runtime environment -- which can be deployed natively to the IBM i or to a variety of distributed platforms, including a virtualized or cloud infrastructure running Windows or Linux.
