 XML-enable NonStop applications the easy way!

XML Thunder from TIC Software and Canam Software is a desktop visual design tool that generates COBOL or C code to be used by NonStop programs to handle XML documents. XML Thunder’s visual designer allows the mapping of XML elements and attributes to program specific data structures. The XML document structure can be manipulated easily in a visual design environment, allowing developers to design XML document handling subprograms without the need to perform tedious, low level programming or learn to use XML parsers and writing parsing logic. With XML Thunder, your developers can add XML document processing in their applications quickly and easily, avoiding any time-consuming manual programming pitfalls.

Solution Benefits

·      - Fully automate COBOL and C source code generation for reading and writing XML documents

·      - Add XML support to your applications in minutes instead of days

BackBox releases integrated encryption using HP NonStop VLE

PCI compliance is progressively getting stricter about what is acceptable for storage of customer information. This includes backups of the data, which may actually be more vulnerable based on where and how they are stored, transmitted or transported. The only truly secure way to address these requirements is to use robust encryption and key management that meets government standards. HP has created an infrastructure on NonStop that provides the basic building blocks for such a solution, with their Enterprise Secure Key Manager (ESKM) product, and the Volume Level Encryption (VLE) option on NonStop Blade and NS-series systems. Together these products provided encryption of data at rest on disk drives connected to CLIMs.

However, for tape storage VLE simply passes keys from the ESKM to an LTO 4 tape drive for its application of encryption to data written to physical media. Until now there has not been a solution to apply the security of ESKM + VLE to virtual tape storage.

ETI-NET is announcing the immediate availability of the VLE-integration option for its BackPak™ virtual tape solution. Virtual tape images can be transparently encrypted in industry-standard format using keys securely generated and delivered by an HP ESKM via the VLE option in NonStop CLIMs. Once encrypted, these virtual tape images can be transmitted and stored on a variety of media and storage systems without concern for the security of their content.

The BackBox VLE integration option features:

• Integrates with the customer’s enterprise-wide key management

• Use of keys generated by HP’s FIPS 140-2 certified ESKM key manager

• Self-identifying virtual media for retrieval of the appropriate key from the ESKM

• Periodic key change is handled completely transparently based on user ESKM policies

• Use of the AES encryption algorithm in Galois Counter Mode with a 256-bit key

• Implemented on the BackBox VTC platform – no overhead in NonStop processors

• Negligible impact on backup or restore transfer rates

• Completely transparent to NonStop backup applications and catalog management

• Supports key-per-device mode or key-per-volume mode

• Groups of cataloged tape volumes can be configured to be encrypted, with guarantee that encryption is active, or uncataloged volumes encrypted by specific drive designation

This is the first virtual tape encryption solution for NonStop that does not involve proprietary key management, algorithms or use of external encryption appliances. So you can be confident both in satisfying your PCI audits and in on-going support by HP for the key management solution. To discuss this or other backup solutions for NonStop, contact ETI-NET by telephone at 1-561-395-2278 ext.23 or by email at information@etinet.com .

Maintenance and modernization of complex, heterogeneous software applications

A good deal of software running on NonStop computers is around for quite some time. Challenges are that developers, who created the software, are no longer in your company or will retire soon.  Documentation is very often not comprehensive or up-to-date. The knowledge of the software is in the brains of developers who know the applications for a long time. The loss of control over the software is an Operational Risk according to the regulations of BASEL III.

There is a solution to these challenges. In a day or two you can get:

·        A technical (re-) documentation of your applications

·        A check whether all programs can be compiled

·        The ability to delete no longer used modules and dead code

·        A HyperCube Repository that provides access to all details of the software

·        Ability to see the impact of a change to the entire system in a second

·        Capability to follow the value chain through applications

·        Chance to reduce your application backlog and shorten time to market

The name of this technology is ITP-PANORAMA. You can get references from small to large NonStop sites in the US and Europe. Without a risk you can license ITP-PANORAMA for one month and try for yourself how easy maintenance and modernization of software can be.

NonStop Waste Basket

A Tandem system does not support the Norton Undo functionality: When a file is purged, it is gone at least in a way, that it is nearly impossible to recover it.
In contrast to this, Windows support a waste basket, where a deleted file ends up, and from where it can be retrieved.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have this feature on Tandem as well?

GreenHouse has developed a Tandem based waste basket.

It is realized as library (WBLIB, available in all file code flavours), which has to be attached to e.g. FUP, TACL, FTPSETV and other programs performing a file delete. The library catches the file, and moves it to a waste basket.

To prevent the waste basket from filling up a disk, the waste basket watch dog program (WBDOG) checks the wasted files on a daily basis, and performs a final delete of over aged files; the file age is configurable.

The waste basket command interpreter (WBCOM) allows the file owner to retrieve a file (or set of files) from the waste basket.

More information, and a two month test version, can be requested from: Info@GreenHouse.de


comForte webinar series - Understanding the benefits from modernizing the data center’s network


Despite the swan songs of late and the dwindling support of SNA by the major vendors including IBM and Cisco, SNA continues to retain a presence within the enterprise. Aged equipment fulfilling a critical role, an application retained long after the knowledge to change it has receded, and links with partner networks that have proved difficult to upgrade, have all contributed to some elements of SNA being retained at considerably expense and vulnerability to the enterprise. Managing the migration to an open, industry-standard network technology, as is becoming necessary with the prevalence of TCP/IP, can now be considered for the first time.


Attend this webinar and find out ...

·        How to move away from SNA in your data center, and what is required?

·        Why uLinga is a universal solution on open platforms and what has been added to make it a better alternative than other approaches already adopted!

·        Where the product uLinga is heading (Quo Vadis?), and why this is becoming increasingly important in a world of rapidly changing network client connections?

·        Why this is good for your organization!

This webinar will be presented by Richard Buckle, Founder and CEO of Pyalla Technologies, LLC. Richard has enjoyed a long association with the IT industry as a user, vendor, and more recently, as an industry commentator.

 Availability Digest Says Your Computer May be a Skype Supernode 

Skype’s December 22, 2010, outage brought to light a little understood fact – Skype’s distributed peer-to-peer network utilizes hundreds of thousands of customer PCs as VoIP supernodes.  Your computer may be one of them.  Unless you read the fine print in Skype’s End User License Agreement, you probably have no idea that your computer may have been commandeered.  The Availability Digest’s January article on the Skype outage explores how a bug in certain Windows clients, many of which are supernodes, prevented the clients from assisting Skype in keeping its network operational.

Other topics in this month’s Digest include:

Hypoxic Fire-Prevention Systems – Fire-prevention systems that use hypoxic air (16% oxygen content vs. normal 21% oxygen content) maintain data-center oxygen levels that are safe for humans but that suppress fires.  Learn more about commercially available hypoxic fire-prevention systems and about the controversies surrounding this unique approach to data-center fire protection.

NonStop - A Running Commentary

The celebrations behind NonStop (earlier, Tandem Computers) turning 35 are now behind us and the talk these days centers on what we can expect to see from HP for the remainder of the decade. It may be too early to speculate on recent news articles that suggest changes are coming at HP and that the new CEO, Leo Apotheker, will unveil his strategy for HP. but among the user community there’s been a pent-up expectation that change is about to happen.

However, my inspiration for this issue of Tandemworld.Net came from an unlikely source. Appearing in my inbox was an email from my good friend, Lyman that on first appearances looked like the typical circular we so often get these days – just a collection of snappy lines and humorous observations.

I usually discard these emails quickly but as I scanned the list, a couple of items stood out and have now given me a framework with which to view the future of NonStop as I see it!

“Nostalgia isn't what it used to be”

After 35 years as a system vendor, could NonStop be destined to become a pure software-play? Is it even imaginable that HP could consider NonStop as nothing more than a series of infrastructure stacks, complete with supporting utilities, libraries, and tools that will provide the highest level of availability, scalability and even the biggest data bases to those customers who demand something as robust as what we have all associated with running NonStop?

In my post to Real Time View on January 18th, 2011


I suggested that as software, NonStop doesn’t really have to rely on “specialized hardware just to retain the NonStop (or Tandem Computers) label!”

While I didn’t come out and say it, with the way the NonStop Enterprise Division (NED) R&D has handled the adjustments that had to happen with the switch of chip vendors to Intel, I have to believe NonStop could run on a pair of sardine tins, if there were any processors inside whatsoever! Nostalgia? It’s not the hardware anymore that differentiates today’s NonStop, so let’s not get hung up on this issue …

“I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was going to blame you”

A bit harsh? Seriously, I take myself to task here, as I held on to the old ways for far too long – to the point now that when I talk to my development friends across the NonStop vendor community who are developing products in mixes of C / C++ and Java, I am often at a loss of understanding all that they are telling me.

TACL? TAL? Enscribe? All great products in their time, and like any computer system of longstanding, they will always have their place, but seriously, isn’t it time we just let it go? Today’s NonStop platform is as modern as any other, but unfortunately, when our managers see us writing TAL via our green-screen emulation, anyone wonders they throw the NonStop server in the same bucket as any other legacy product!

Virtualization? I continue to listen to my younger colleagues bemoan the lack of virtualization on NonStop when all they are talking about is off-the-shelf products like VMWare, Zen, etc – but for anyone with experience on IBM mainframes and knowledge of VM/370 (and its history), anytime you can divorce where routines run from the underlying metalwork, as is the case with TS/MP (or Pathway) you have virtualization. Get over it! You may not be at fault – but I will still come looking for you!

“To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target”

Why do we keep thinking of NonStop deployments as being associated with banks, retailers, telephone companies, and the likes. There are just so many more industries out there where NonStop is applicable. Perhaps it’s the lack of solutions?

Then again, with the work NED has done in supporting run-time stacks for Java (and more recently, the port of Mono in support of .Net Common Language Runtime, or CLR needed by one solutions provider) any modern application should be able to run on NonStop.

The world is changing, and quickly. Clouds, smart mobile devices, tablet PCs! NonStop should be anchoring cloud computing and supporting always-on, have to have it when I need it, and right now, information access of the kind business is beginning to tap into. Only recently, when it came to the iPad, according to a Reuters report on Apple following the announcement of it’s most recent quarterly results, four out of five Fortune 100 companies were now field-testing the device.

It’s only a matter of time before NonStop solutions are broadened to include support for such client devices and then, of course, we will all be quick to recognize that yes, this is a natural marketplace for NonStop!

“Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine”

It was also Reuters who commented on IBM’s most recent quarterly results, of how “IBM, which has been shifting its focus from commoditized hardware to higher-margin services and software over the past decade” is now reaping the benefits via increased services contracts.

This message is not lost on HP’s new CEO either, who has been reported to have said that he, too, “is eyeing a shift towards the more profitable software, networking and storage businesses” and to “downplay the less lucrative personal computer and server businesses.”

The move to commodity hardware at HP is almost complete and the hardware on which NonStop will run will shortly be indistinguishable from any other hardware HP ships. Yes, ServerNet remains as the only unique component required of NonStop, but this too will be dropped in favor of something all platforms can use, like InfiniBand (IB) as Intel’s chips get so fast that ServerNet becomes a bottleneck – likely somewhere between Poulson and Kittson chips.

In my most recent post to comForte Lounge on January 14th, 2011 (http://comfortelounge.blogspot.com/2011/01/its-going-to-be-hot.html)

I wrote of how I’m often asked why I persist with positioning NonStop as the backend server in this mix, and yet “always on, always available, whenever I need it” has become the catch-cry of these executives, and I see few alternatives to NonStop when it really counts.

Change is inevitable but this time around, I see it as a situation not to be decried or where we should be moaning too loudly. After all, if the past 35 years has taught us anything it’s that there’s still no better option than NonStop if the service on offer simply has to remain available, no matter what! Not from IBM! Or from Microsoft! Or from Oracle!

And on that note, I look forward to watching the transformation of NonStop that I’m certain will happen during this decade!

CommitWork Developer Suite (CDS)

Maintaining is our daily business

The daily job of a COBOL programmer is bug fixes and implementing functional add ons. The original source code is 20 years old or even older, in most parts it is not documented, and often programmers who are expected to make the changes have never seen the source code before.
Diving into the source code in most cases takes much longer than making the necessary enhancements.

Using Eclipse and the powerful COBOL plugins CDS you can speed up your tasks.

Eclipse provides for you:

                              Historical comparison

Additionally CommitWork’s CDS is offering:

Syntax highlighting
Marking of compiler errors in the source code
Outlineview (showing procedure names and sections in a separate view)
Integrated Peruse(Spooler)
SQL-Statement generator
Comment toggle
Utilizing your existing compile macros
Supporting Tal, Cobol85, NMCobol, Screen Cobol, C (coming soon)

Developing for HP NonStop: Eclipse is your first choice!

HP is providing  NSDEE (HP NonStop Development Environment Version 2.0 for Eclipse).

CommitWork is adding CDS (CommitWork Developer Suite).
