IBM Mixed Language Application Modernization Pattern V1.0 is a
virtual application pattern used to deploy and manage mixed language
applications within a cloud environment using either the IBM Workload
Deployer, or on the IBM PureApplication System. Using this pattern,
in conjunction with the IBM Web Application Pattern V2.0, enables
cloud application writers to efficiently create modern cloud-ready
mixed language applications using existing application components
written in COBOL, C, and Java Enterprise Edition (JEE).
Existing, time-tested enterprise application assets can therefore
be used to create modern applications for the cloud. By utilizing
readily available Java skills to extend existing applications into
JEE, it is possible to deliver the functionality to meet new business
needs faster than rewriting the entire application. This pattern
provides a quick, easy, and repeatable deployment of middleware and
other components associated with composite, mixed language,
IBM Mixed Language Application Modernization Pattern, along with
the IBM Web Application Pattern, automatically provisions various
application components and connections to persistence resources to
meet the quality of service levels specified for the application.
This consistent and repeatable cloud-deployed environment
significantly reduces the time required to deploy applications into
production and, by automating previously manual steps, lowers the risk
of errors in the deployment process.
IBM Mixed Language Application Modernization Pattern V1.0 consists
of two key parts:
- Language Runtime capability
- Transactional Extensions capability
The Language Runtime capability comes pre-entitled with
the IBM PureApplication System W1700 and provides an execution runtime
environment based on IBM WebSphere eXtended Transaction Runtime V2.1
for hosting COBOL and C applications.
The Transactional Extensions capability provides
additional capability to host COBOL and C-based business transactions
utilizing the IBM CICS APIs. This part also supports migration assist
tooling to host applications that have Oracle Tuxedo ATMI API. The
Transactional Extensions capability is available separately as a
purchasable part. If that functionality is required, the appropriate
license must be purchased before use.
