Create reusable data objects and new Web services from a range of application environments
Clerity Solutions, a full-service provider of mainframe migration, modernisation and optimisation offerings, has introduced new software to help businesses carry out legacy transformation initiatives for Windows- and .NET managed-code environments.
As part of the company’s IT modernisation suite, the new software Clerity Transforming Enterprise Applications (TEA) enables developers to create reusable data objects and new Web services from a range of application environments without changing existing source code.
The software exposes business logic to mobile computing, service oriented architecture, and other IT initiatives, to extend and enhance the value of applications from a mix of server environments, including IBM mainframes, Linux, UNIX, and Microsoft Windows-based systems.
For organisations looking to leverage legacy applications across the enterprise in new Microsoft .NET, Web, client/server, or mobile applications, Clerity TEA software provides a fully integrated plug-in that extends Microsoft Visual Studio and an intuitive drag-and-drop environment to capture legacy and Windows-based application data sources.
The TEA technology converts these screens and data into reusable, .NET managed-code objects that can be deployed to any Microsoft .NET project type, including Windows Forms, Web Forms, Web Services, Windows Presentation Foundation, and Windows Communication Foundation applications.
Clerity TEA objects can also be used in the creation of customized workflows leveraging Microsoft BizTalk Server to build composite applications for the Windows Azure cloud.
Clerity’s Microsoft Practice CTO Glenn Dent said businesses are looking for ways to combine information from disparate systems, including legacy, with the latest advances in application delivery and presentation.
"Clerity TEA is a powerful tool for delivering a rich user experience while maximizing value of existing investments," Dent said.
