Meantime Novell Inc last week launched Tuxedo System 5, which includes OSI/TP conformance as well as other enhancements. These enhancements include integration with proprietary systems, additional server and client systems, a new runtime trace feature, and dynamic data-dependent routing. The main addition to System 5 is the Domains feature, which gives more flexible systems management and enables administrators to configure Tuxedo servers into autonomous groups called domains, as well as being able to specify which application services in a given domain are to be exported to other domains. Conformance to the International Standards Organisation and X/Open OSI/TP standard will enable a Tuxedo transaction to flow between different networked machines using vendor-supplied OSI/TP stacks, such as those from Unisys Corp, Compagnie des Machines Bull SA, ICL Plc and Siemens Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG. Siemens Nixdorf’s UTM, Universal Transaction Monitor has supported the OSI/TP since last year.
