Enables user-written applications to exchange messages with co-operating applications in an IBM host.
The HP SNA APPC/LU6.2 Programming Interface for OpenVMS is a layered software product which allows user-written applications, running on suitably configured OpenVMS systems within a HP network, to exchange messages with co-operating applications in an IBM host.
This APPC product is a set of subroutines that are called by OpenVMS programs, which act as Logical Unit 6.2 (LU6.2) transaction application programs. The APPC software exists in the OpenVMS system as a shareable image. Access between the co-operating HP and IBM applications is via a HP SNA Gateway.
- Performs the SNA communications function on the programmer's behalf, allowing the user to concentrate on solving the application problem rather than having to learn about the underlying communications medium.
- The verbs comprising the APPC product are defined to make the individual subroutine calls correspond to the verbs defined in the IBM manual SNA Transaction Programmers Reference Manual for Logical Unit 6.2. This makes it easier for
IBM application level programmers to code OpenVMS LU6.2 programs.
- Implements both the basic and mapped conversation verb set using the same procedure calls. The OpenVMS programmer may choose which type of conversation is desired by specifying the appropriate symbolic code in the TYPE parameter of the SNALU62$ALLOCATE procedure.
- Both sets of verbs can be synchronous or asynchronous. Asynchronous completion of verbs allows for multithreaded applications to use the LU6.2 interface without blockage.
