WRQ Adds Web-Services Support

Add-on would be useful in connecting modern company portal software to legacy systems.

WRQ Inc., which sells software for integrating mainframe components with newer IT systems, is adding support for emerging Web-services technology within its latest toolset. On Monday, WRQ will make available through its Web site an add-on component for Verastream Host Integrator 4.5 and Verastream Integration Broker 9.0. The add-on is free to Verastream customers.

Host Integrator, which starts at $60,000, lets developers abstract and encapsulate pieces of business logic from mainframe and legacy systems and expose the components as Component Object Model or Corba objects or through a Java application programming interface, all common technologies within modern IT systems. A developer can also register the components within Integration Broker and use the tool, which starts at $64,000, to build a business process by connecting the various application pieces. Verastream customers include the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Driver and Vehicle Services Division.

The add-on includes an open-source Apache access server that can take Simple Object Access Protocol requests from Web applications and perform the translation necessary to pass on the request to a mainframe or legacy component exposed as a Java API. Soap, one of three core technologies used in emerging Web-services architectures, is the communication protocol based on XML for connecting applications. The WRQ add-on would be useful in connecting modern company portal software to legacy systems, company officials said.
