With e-business initiatives forcing corporations to tie together disparate platforms, Rogue Wave Software (Boulder, Colo.)--a company that specializes in providing software solutions for building high performance, distributed, enterprise and Internet applications--has announced that its most-popular cross-platform products now support the AS/400 and OS/390 platforms.

“Mainframes continue to be the workhouses of corporate IT infrastructures, and Rogue Wave is committed to enhancing their performance through interoperable, component technology,” says Dr. Kathy Bush, VP of marketing for Rogue Software. “Rogue Wave’s cross-platform products are particularly well-suited to the AS/400 and OS/390 continuous-processing clustering architecture and we support IBM’s push to make AS/400 and OS/390 the e-business platforms of choice.”

Rogue Wave’s product line (including: Tools h++, DBTools with a DB2 Access Library, Threads.h++, Money.h++, and Standard C++ Library) is immediately available for AS/400 including installation and certification, a designated support contract for one year, and response and resolution time guarantees. Rogue’s set of libraries and components can be distributed across all operating systems, keeping the programmers’ interface consistent in order to streamline migration of enterprise applications to the mainframe.

“With e-business expansion and integration, Hurwitz Group (Framingham, Mass.) expects highly scalable platforms such as AS/400 and OS/390 to continue to be a critical part of mission-critical applications,” says David Kelly, senior VP at the Hurwitz Group. “As a result, Hurwitz Group is seeing an increasing requirement for integration into these systems and flexibility in working with other systems and components. This announcement will enable the AS/400 and OS/390 community with a greater set of options for e-business application development.”
