Today's "open standards" have many smart people confused. Departmental legacy
systems and existing applications that function just fine, combined with
an organization's desire to stay current in technology can lead to
frustration for end users, as well as the people who support them.
With all the options available for connecting your enterprise, you need
a system that is fast, scalable, and flexible. Trifox's VORTEX provides
the backbone for just such an environment.
Trifox creates and supports accessware for multi-tier, distributed
applications on the internet, intranet, and enterprise environments
that can solve the problems of getting to your data no matter where
it is, or who needs it.
The building blocks are simple. VORTEX was originally engineered for
a multi-tier environment; the concepts of code efficiency and re-use
are fundamental to its approach.
Current popularity of Java, and the desire to maintain an open environment
have made Java applets and JDBC popular choices for new development. COBOL has
never fallen out of favor, due to its unique uses, and now you can seamlessly
incorporate your COBOL applications into your enterprise:
You select the pieces that you need to fit your own environment,
the components are all interoperable, and while you can improve system
performance with VORTEXaccelerator, this portion can be added
at any time.
VORTEX provides cross-platform communication
and transparent concurrent access to all major commercial databases
across multiple hardware platforms.
The open architecture supports a database-independent development
environment and outperforms even proprietary networks. transparent to
both developers and users, VORTEX scales to your environment.
All VORTEX installations that span machines (that is, require more than one
machine to work) must include a VORTEXserver, which encompasses the
virtual database and VORTEXcli, the call-level interface. Application
developers only need one compiler or precompiler to make VORTEX accessible
to a SQL program.
Includes VORTEX, VORTEXcli, and VORTEXclient/server (also called VORTEXnet).
Libraries for Java, JDBC, Perl, ODBC, and C++, and pre-compilers
for COBOL and C.
Provides access to low-level data sources.
Gives you transparent access to remote procedure calls anywhere on the network.
VORTEXaccelerator optimizes application performance through a sophisticated
database cursor management algorithm.
