HP OpenVMS Engineering has decided not to port BridgeWorks to OpenVMS for Integrity servers.
This decision was a difficult one based on emerging technology, customer requirements, and resources.
BridgeWorks Version 3.0A will be supported on OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3-2 and 8.2-x over
the support life of those releases.
Services Integration Toolkit for OpenVMS (WSIT)
is the replacement for BridgeWorks
and the evolution of our technology to implement API-based integration solutions.
This toolkit provides an easy to use set of tools that are 100% OpenVMS-based. The toolkit
facilitates wrapping OpenVMS applications and code as a JavaBean object.
The JavaBean can be exposed
as a Web service or used by Jakarta Tomcat, a J2EE application server, JMS, Microsoft .NET, and so on,
as appropriate for the larger integration solution.
WSIT provides the implementer with the most flexibility on the structure of the
overall integration solution. WSIT was developed with Web Services in mind, but
does nothing to force you to use Web Services.
WSIT provides support for the OpenVMS 3GL languages and ACMS. A migration tool (bwx2idl.jar)
that eases the migration from BridgeWorks to WSIT is available from the WSIT download page.
to the Web Services Integration Toolkit from BridgeWorks whitepaper
describes in detail the steps necessary to migrate.
Services Integration Toolkit for OpenVMS is available now. See the
WSIT home page
for more information and to download the latest kit.
