Adding FORTRAN, BASIC and C# to COBOL, C/C++ and JAVA makes NXTera 6.1 the most language diverse, high performance RPC middleware available. NXTera 6.1 makes it possible for business logic written in a wide variety of languages to easily inter-operate with contemporary Web Services.

Houston, Texas. November 29, 2011

eCube Systems, a leading provider of middleware modernization, integration and management solutions, announced plans for NXTera 6.1 High Performance RPC Middleware. NXTera 6.1 includes an all JAVA broker with NAT support, JDBC database access for Entera servers, new open security platform for authentication, authorization and encryption; tools for FORTRAN, BASIC and C# language integration; and enhancements to its generation of C# and JAVA services interfaces and clients.

NXTera's new open security platform will continue to support Entera's legacy security model, while building its basic security model on LDAP. Kerberos, SSL, TLS or other security models can also be implemented with NXTera 6.1 providing a more robust security environment for companies that need it. This new security model will enable customers to replace legacy application security with contemporary security models seamlessly.

"As the successor to Entera, NXTera continues to evolve," says Kevin Barnes President and CEO of eCube Systems. "Extending inter-operation between newer technologies and legacy languages to help drive IT innovation. Allowing companies to save money and create new value from existing IT investments."

In addition to the new NXTera security features, NXTera 6.1 simplifies legacy to contemporary integration projects with new development environment tools. These include a new Web services debugger, wsdebug; an automated IDL generation tool, defgen; and support for IBM COBOL, C#, and FORTRAN in the rpcmake IDL compiler for native stub generation. Additionally, although it does not leverage native stub generation for BASIC, NXTera 6.1 is the first version to officially support BASIC integration with customized stubs and implementation patterns for BASIC language application integration.

With every new release, NXTera continues to expand its capabilities with new features and improved tooling. In NXTera 6.1 there are improvements to the internals of the NXTmake tool that generates C#, Visual Basic.NET, Java, or Web services connectors for C, COBOL, FORTRAN and BASIC business logic. The generated code can be used in Microsoft Visual Studio or Eclipse to create service interfaces to legacy business logic for use in enterprise, Web and mobile applications.

NXTera 6.1 server runs on and is certified for the latest versions of: Linux, Windows 2008, zOS (zLinux,) Solaris, AIX 6.1, HP-UX, and HP OpenVMS. Additionally, NXTera supports both the Microsoft , IBM and Apache AXIS2 Web services application stacks.
