Gconnect R6.6 is available

Gconnect is the G&R connector that makes your unchanged core business applications on your mainframes accessible from new Java applications running on any J2EE compatible Application Server.

3tier

Core business applications on mainframe systems are generally developed for dialog with a terminal using presentation control sequences specific to the terminal type, for example 3270 for IBM mainframes or 5250 for the IBM AS400. Gconnect is able to connect your J2EE applications using these terminal interfaces with absolutely no modification to the mainframe applications, because Gconnect harnesses the power of the G&R Glink for Java terminal emulations to make the information in those terminal screens available as Java records. Your Java application is able to input data to the mainframe system, just as if it were a terminal of the required type.

This release features:

  • New Application Server platforms Giving you a choice of industry leaders in J2EE
  • New hardware platforms Opening your way to next generation server platforms
  • SSL (Secure Socket Layer) support Offering you the browser/web-server security standard
  • SSH (Secure Shell) support Offering you the popular UNIX/Linux security standard
  • Unlimited connections, license by App. server CPUs Forget session counting for your J2EE applications
  • Connection pool management for unmanaged mode Your developers can test before deploying

Some release details:

Mainframes supported:

  • IBM OS 390, IBM MVS, IBM z/OS, IBM AS400 (3270, 5250)
  • Bull GCOS8, Bull GCOS7, Bull GCOS6 (VIP, DKU)
  • UNIX/Linux, DEC, Minitel (VT220, ANSI, Teletel)

Application servers and hardware platforms supported:

Sun reference model Solaris Sparc, Solaris Intel ObjectWeb JOnAS 4.1.4 Windows 2000, XP, 2003, 2003 server 32/64 bit Linux kernel 2.x, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 32/62 bit AIX 5.x BEA WebLogic Server 7.0, 8.1 Windows 2000, XP, 2003, 2003 server 32/64 bit Linux kernel 2.x, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 32/64 bit AIX 5.x IBM WebSphere 5.1 Windows 2000, XP, 2003, 2003 server 32/64 bit Linux kernel 2.x, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 32/64 bit AIX 5.x Oracle AS 10g Windows 2000, XP, 2003, 2003 server 32/64 bit Linux kernel 2.x, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 32/64 bit Solaris 9

Live J2EE application demonstrations

The live demonstrations delivered with Gconnect have been extended for installation on Weblogic, ObjectWeb JOnAS, Oracle AS and WebSphere

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) support

  • SSL supported between J2EE applications and Glink server
  • SSL supported between J2EE applications and mainframes

SSH (Secure Shell) support

  • SSH supported between J2EE applications and mainframes

Unlimited connections from J2EE applications to mainframes

All Gconnect sessions now share a single license. Thus the number of licenses for a standard delivery is 2: one shared license for all connector clients, and one additional license for the Glink for Java Administration program and/or Gargen/Glink for Java.

Pool management for unmanged mode

Connection pool management added for unmanaged mode, allowing the connector to be used as a code library with basic pool management support in non-J2EE environments. Developers can test on their workstations before deploying on a J2EE Application Server.

Enhanced Gargen for generation of J2EE Enterprise JavaBeans

The user interface for the application component generator, Gargen, has been redesigned. The Glink screen is placed within the application frame of Gargen. Creating a new bean or stepping through an existing bean to view or modify it is now significantly easier and faster.

Gargen generates EJBs for use with Gconnect on JOnAS, Oracle AS, Weblogic and WebSphere J2EE Application Servers.
