Connecting TIBCO Products to Mainframe and Midrange Systems
applications running on mainframe and midrange systems
are a formidable barrier to true enterprise integration.
These systems rarely have documented or open interfaces,
making them painfully difficult to integrate. Systems
are not being retired at the pace previously thought,
so finding a fast and effective way to integrate and
extend them has become the more practical strategy.
defines the 'last mile' as the chasm between legacy
systems and modern EAI platforms. There are more than
300,000 custom applications isolated on the other side
of this divide. MITEM has focused on delivering solutions
to bridge this last mile and is recognized as the leader
in legacy integration software.
signature product, MitemView, provides non-invasive
integration to legacy mainframe and midrange systems.
MitemView enables real-time integration of
disparate systems without requiring changes or additions
to existing applications. MitemView is used
to provide the last mile connection between TIBCO products
and myriad legacy systems.
of the MITEM Host Adapter for
TIBCO ActiveEnterprise to myriad legacy systems: IBM
OS/390, AS/400, DEC VAX, Unix, Unisys, Tandem, Bull,
ICL, and Data General
Host Adapter is built with the TIBCO Adapter SDK to
maintain adapter functionality and compatibility
technology reliably maintains synchronization and
state information between disparate systems
be deployed as a stand-alone LAN gateway or in combination
with TIBCO Substation ES
Host Adapter for TIBCO ActiveEnterprise complements
TIBCO's own portfolio of mainframe integration products
that include support for transaction processing systems,
direct database access and file transfers.
and MITEM products are event-based, processing transactions
and messages in real-time as they occur. This real-time
operation is quickly replacing batch-mode processing
in support of today's evolving business processes including
Customer Self-Service, B2B automation and Straight Through
MITEM Host Adapter for TIBCO ActiveEnterprise can be
rapidly deployed. A custom MitemView adapter
is generated from a template using ProStart, a tool
from MITEM's family of productivity assistants. This
tool collects all relevant parameters via a point-and-click
wizard-style interface and generates a foundation Java
framework. The developer adds custom integration control
and business logic to the framework using MitemView's
implemented, TIBCO Rendezvous or TIBCO ActiveEnterprise
messages are received by the MitemView server.
MitemView manages the interactions with the
legacy system and processes all relevant data. When
the legacy transaction is complete, MitemView
formats a TIBCO Rendezvous or TIBCO ActiveEnterprise
message and posts it to the information bus.
