Hitachi Software is claiming revolutionary status for TPBroker, its new object-oriented transaction monitoring tool for Intranets and the Internet.
Its uniqueness supposedly lies in the combination of online transaction processing with CORBA-compliant middleware, supposedly resolving the safety and security doubts cast at client-server tool vendors by the high-end community.
The tool is CORBA-compliant, eliminating any need for code changes in other CORBA applications, and reducing risk, effort and manual costs. Tony Jones, Hitachi Software?s European Business Manager, explained: ?One of the core advantages offered by TPBroker over other OLTP tools is its ease of adoption. It can be incorporated into any CORBA-compliant application without the need for major code changes.?
He added: ?Users can take their core transactional applications from the mainframe and run them in a distributed environment in a highly open, secure and robust fashion. TPBroker is a valuable tool for any users looking to perform online transaction processing across the Intranet or Internet... in high demand from many industry sectors from banking to airline management.?
The tool consists of a number of components. The Transaction Manager derives from Hitachi?s OpenTP1 online transaction processing system and a CORBA 2.0-compliant ORB. The technologies combine via a customised OMG-compliant Object Transaction Service. TPBroker provides various operational and administrative features, including transaction activation and termination, automatic reactivation and recovery of suspended transactions - and in the event of failure, operational commit and rollback.
Security is via the Security Object Service, and Data consistency is guaranteed by OMG-compliant Object Transaction Service. Hitachi says with Open TP1, TPBroker facilitates the gradual migration of applications towards enterprise-wide systems in coexistence with legacy client-server environments, and OpenTP1 enables the tool to execute across NT, Unix and the rest. Hitachi expects to sell TPBroker largely to systems integrators, but it is available now from Hitachi Software at unspecified costs.
