Secure, Reliable File Transfer
NetWeave’s RFT provides seamless file transfer between disparate proprietary databases. It converts formats as it goes and checkpoints its progress. Use of sophisticated data-compression techniques ensures maximum efficiency of data transfer. >>more
NetWeave for the Web
Web enablement is a NetWeave specialty. We web-enable mission-critical legacy applications by using best-of-breed integration solutions. Two Java interfaces plus a. NET interface are available. >>more
Netweave’s Secure Pipe Technology (NSP) provides a complete solution for customers and integrators who wish to create a protected, private network across otherwise hostile public-network terrain. >>more
NetWeave Distributed Services offers two classes of interprocess communication (IPC) for use with server-based applications in distributed architectures. Both models are scalable, extremely reliable, and capable of implementing high-volume, highly interactive applications. Since IPC methods possess different strengths and limitations, it is not unusual for customers of NetWeave Integrated Solutions to take advantage of both NetWeave-supported IPC interfaces. Optional SSL encryption services are also available.
- Interactive (Transactional) Messaging
This is highly efficient and allows client applications to send complex, interactive transactions to remote servers and to receive an immediate response. Interactive messaging also provides peer-to-peer communication, in which
applications can act as either the client or the server and can communicate as equals. In both instances, client/server or peer-to-peer, messages are delivered in order, delivered only once, and are successfully retrieved from their destination queue. If any errors occur, the entire transaction is cancelled. >>more
- Queued Messaging (Workflow)
On the other hand, Queued messaging does not require applications to directly interact. All that is necessary is a reliable guarantee that messages sent are ultimately delivered even in the face of a
network or server failure. Workflow applications, business-related processes that demand a robust, means of carrying out their functions, depend on queues to store messages until they can be safely
received. A simple workflow application might involve building a list of print jobs that are batched and then processed overnight. >>more
Several important sets of ancillary services are provided by NWDS. They include transaction services, used by a client application to bound a series of updates to a remote data base, and dual channel services that allow two systems to be connected by independent communication channels. >>more
