LightWave Server™

LightWave Server™ allows users to expose their HPE NonStop-hosted applications as industry-standard REST services.

Web Service Access to HPE NonStop Just Got Easier

HPE Nonstop platforms host businesses’ “crown jewel” applications, ranging from OLTP systems to “book of record” databases. However, these applications typically have minimal exposure to internal systems and third-party applications.

An easy way to provide a manageable and secure interaction with these applications is through a REST-based interface.

LightWave Server™ allows users to expose their HPE NonStop-hosted applications as industry-standard REST services. These services can then be accessed from REST-enabled clients running on virtually any computing platform. LightWave Server™ does this painlessly while maintaining the security, reliability, and scalability of the HPE NonStop server and applications. This allows customers to integrate the NonStop into their corporate SOA strategy with minimal investment of capital and time.

Core Benefits

  • Modernize programmatic access to existing enterprise applications - Expose existing, production-proven applications as modern RESTful Web services.

  • Respond faster to changing business demands - Securely transact business with partners and customers using disparate platforms or the cloud.

  • Integrate with internal and external third-party applications - Securely connect your NonStop systems to applications running on any Web services compliant platform.

  • Leverage the data and functionally of existing NonStop applications - Increase revenue through the introduction of new business services.

 

NonStop Fundamentals

  • Guardian-based - No need to run OSS, or have any additional software installed. Much simpler installation and management for NonStop environments.

  • Fault-tolerant - Eliminates the risk of downtime with hardware that is dual redundant everything, and system and application software that is robust and self-healing. The goal of every NonStop developer is "no single point of failure".
     

Potential Uses

  • Allow access to HPE NonStop applications from a mobile application or IoT device like an Amazon Echo.

  • Integrate with payment engines like BASE24, Connex, or homegrown solutions.

  • Connect your NonStop applications to software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions like Salesforce, ServiceNow, or any XaaS offering.

We simply replaced NonStop  SOAP with LightWave Server™, without making any changes to our Pathway server that contained the business logic.  This proved to us just how easy it was to move from SOAP to REST without involving the BASE24 development group.
