ATERAS Announces General Availability of eavRPM(TM) Rapid Program Modernization Tool

    Modernize COBOL and Natural Applications to C# and Java

    DALLAS, May 12 /CNW/ -- ATERAS, a leading provider of solutions for
legacy migration and modernization, announced today the general release of
eavRPM(TM) (for Rapid Program Modernization). Mainframe analysts and
developers can create customized, high-powered and well-documented
applications in C# or Java from either COBOL or Natural without knowing any C#
or Java.


    eavRPM was designed to simplify the modernization process, empowering the
existing mainframe programming staff to create modern .NET and Java
applications via an easy-to-use graphical user interface. The tool uses the
existing mainframe applications as both the specifications and the code
foundation for creation of new web applications. In fact, eavRPM users only
need to know how the application works and have a general knowledge about the
current COBOL or Natural language. That's because eavRPM allows capture of
mainframe screens and lines of COBOL or Natural code, and provides the
mechanism to quickly and simply paste the screens and desired business rules
into the new web applications. In a matter of a few hours, a COBOL or Natural
developer can complete a C# or Java web site that prototypes the processing of
an entire mainframe application.

    The results are web applications that are based on the existing mainframe
applications' functionality, business rules and flow, but that are very native
to the robust and stateless nature of the web and that process data stored in
Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, or DB2. The resulting .NET applications take
full advantage of the Microsoft software stack (Windows, Visual Studio,
Internet Information Services (IIS), Team Foundation Server, etc.) and exploit
the nature of object-oriented applications through the use of HTML, AJAX,
ASPX, ADO.NET and C#. The resulting Java applications take full advantage of
the Java language and the advanced features in JSP/Struts, AJAX, Tomcat/JBoss
and Hibernate/ JDBC. Because eavRPM generates native C# and Java solutions,
all applications are delivered directly from eavRPM to either Visual Studio or
to your Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

    Functional changes are easily applied through eavRPM, including the
addition of literals, pull-downs, checkboxes, radio buttons, gridviews,
graphics, or logos to any page or field. Existing mainframe screens can be
easily split or combined with one another to change and update the look and
feel of the resulting applications. New web applications are developed
quickly, without the need to re-staff or to spend months developing
specifications for the new applications. The ATERAS eavRPM solution includes
no system-level software, no "black box" processing and no perpetuation of
mainframe commands. Once the new application has been released to production,
no additional ATERAS license fees are required because all future maintenance
is done using Visual Studio or any of the Java IDEs.

    "eavRPM was designed to simplify the modernization process while reducing
the time and cost of the effort. This tool empowers your existing programming
staff to create modern, web-savvy applications using an intuitive graphical
user interface that leverages the mainframe legacy application," said Scott
Miller, CEO/President, ATERAS.
