Web Service Access to HPE NonStop Just Got Easier

NuWave Product Logos_NuWave Server Logo

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.
