eCube Systems, a provider of tools and middleware products for enterprise systems, said that it will release its NXTminder Application Management Systems next month, as part of the release of NXTera 6.0 RPC Middleware.
According to eCube, the NXTminder is a platform-independent application management offering, designed to simplify the runtime operation and dependability of enterprise applications built on distributed services. It is certified to manage server-side software, including independent applications, processes, distributed business logic, native scripts and executables.
In addition, the NXTminder also has the capability to manage services group together in configurations. Services within a configuration are given an ordered designation for start-up and shutdowns based on their relationships and the dependencies between services. Its scheduler can initiate actions that manage system load, automate maintenance, prioritise configurations and target servers for use.
The NXTminder supports native scripts, executables, various distributed middleware models and their components, including RPC, CORBA. In addition, it replaces Netminder, Appminder, AppCenter and OpCenter applications developed by OEC and Borland for legacy Entera, VisiBroker and DCE applications, eCube Systems said.
NXTminder is certified on Windows, Linux, zLinux, AIX, MAC OS, HP-UX, Solaris and OpenVMS. It makes it possible to manage COBOL, FORTRAN, C, C# , perl, Java and Python applications from a single console; and is build on eCube NXTware Server platform and can integrate within any major application server container, the company said.
Kevin Barnes, president and CEO of eCube Systems, said: This is an important announcement for both legacy and new application operations. NXTminder will be used not only to replace Borland’s non-supported Appminder and AppCentre implementations, but also with new application development based on new scripting languages like Python. NXTminder provides the performance and productivity that high-performance computing systems like NXTera require.
