Quick Overview – What is Web SOA/Web Service?

If you are new to SOA and Web Service, you may want to have a quick overview of this technology and what it means to your NonStop application. Here's some straightforward easy-to-understand information:

The “Cliff Notes Summary” - 5 Basic Things You Should Know About SOA and Web Service

  1. SOA is an architecture, not a product. SOA is usually implemented via Web Service
  2. Web Service is doing Remote Procedure Call (RPC) over a standard set of protocols based on HTTP/HTTPS, SOAP, and XML
  3. SOAP Product is usually synonymous with Web Service Product. That means SOAP/AM is a product that provides best support for your NonStop Web Service needs.
  4. Implementing Web Service on NonStop can open up your applications to easily interoperate with other platforms. 
    • Web Service (Server) – SOAPAM Server
      Making a Pathway Server available as a Web Service will enable .NET, Java and other platforms to access it more easily
    •  Web Service Client – SOAPAM Client
      Enabling your NonStop Requester program - be it in SCOBOL, COBOL or any other language to- call the many available Web services on other platforms on your intranet or even the Internet
  5. TIC Software and SOAP/AM will help you implement your Web Service easily.

SOAP/AM Server – Open up your NonStop applications to other platforms

Applications on the NonStop represent the core component of many companies’ business processing. As these companies start to implement other applications on other platforms outside the NonStop, there is a growing need for these applications to access and integrate with the Pathway applications.

Here are some common scenarios:

  • A desktop Windows .NET client application front end needs to access the Pathway application for transaction processing
  • A .NET or Java Web Server application needs to send an inquiry transaction to NonStop
  • A 3rd party package like SAP or Oracle needs to update a NonStop database server

All these scenarios can be accomplished easily by making the Pathway Servers available as Web Services & SOAP/AM Server is the product that can help you accomplish that easily, and in Guardian!   Here is some information that will show you how:

SOAP/AM Client – Let NonStop be an ACTIVE participant in the Web Service world!

While it is useful to make NonStop applications available a Web Service to other platforms, it basically places the NonStop as a “passive” participant in the enterprise. The really exciting frontier is to enable NonStop application to invoke other web services outside the NonStop to become an “active” participant. Imagine the possibilities Web Service Client can bring to your NonStop applications.

  • Easily access a new application developed by another department on.NET or Java platform via a Web Service call
  • Perform an inquiry on the company’s CRM or SAP systems to look up information as part of the NonStop application transaction
  • Access all the available Web Services on the Internet, including: Financial transactions, quotes, package tracking, foreign exchanges, etc.

All these scenarios can be accomplished easily by using SOAP/AM Client. Like SOAP/AM Server, it runs on Guardian and requires no OSS. Here is some information that will show you how:
