LightWave ServerTM allows you to expose your existing Guardian or Pathway servers as industry-standard REST services. These services can then be accessed from REST clients running on virtually any computing platform. LightWave ServerTM does this while maintaining the security, reliability and scalability of your HPE NonStop server and applications.
LightWave ServerTM is a Guardian process that accepts JSON messages via HTTP over TCP/IP. LightWave ServerTM converts each JSON request message into your server's own interprocess message (IPM) format before forwarding to the server. When your server replies, LightWave ServerTM converts the IPM into a JSON response which it returns to the calling application. There's no need to change your existing servers, so any existing client applications are unaffected.
LightWave ClientTM allows applications running on NonStop servers to securely access REST Web services anywhere, on any platform or operating system.
Your NonStop application simply sends a formatted interprocess message to the LightWave ClientTM Process which handles all of the details of mapping the IPM elements to a JSON message, exchanging the message with the Web service provider, and parsing the JSON response into the reply IPM.
