Tech Wizards Unite! NuWave’s LightWaveTM and S3UtilsTM Casting Spells on the Industry
Dave Belliveau CTO, NuWave Technologies
NuWave Technologies celebrates yet another glorious year at the forefront of NonStop technological innovation. We have introduced significant updates to the LightWave ecosystem and launched a new product, S3UtilsTM, showcasing our commitment to staying ahead in technological evolution.
Part I: LightWave’s Leap Forward
SOAPamⓇ Client Compatibility Mode
NuWave addressed the challenge posed by SOAPam’s end of service life by introducing SOAPamⓇ Client Compatibility in LightWave. This feature enables a smooth transition for existing SOAPamⓇ Client users to modern REST/JSON frameworks without modifying application code.
The migration process involves:
- Converting SOAPamⓇ Client Definitions Files (CDF) to LightWave Client API definitions.
- Reconfiguring the existing SOAPAMCP server class to run the LightWave ClientTM CLIENT process.
- Configuring the CLIENT server class to run in compatibility mode, with additional modifications for options alignment.
The client compatibility feature is now generally available, with SOAPamⓇ Server compatibility for LightWave ServerTM gearing up for early adopter testing.
Part II: Unveiling S3UtilsTM
S3UtilsTM is designed to facilitate the transfer of objects between any S3-compatible object storage service and the HPE NonStop Server Guardian file system. Addressing the challenge of integrating S3 storage with the NonStop platform, S3UtilsTM offers two components:
2.2.1 The S3COM Utility: A command-line interface compatible with Guardian COM program model, providing interactive access to S3 storage and supporting various operations.
2.2.2 The S3SERV Process: Deployed as a standalone or TS/MP server class, it integrates with S3 storage services, enabling NonStop applications to interact with S3 storage during online transaction processing.
Core Benefits and Availability:
S3UtilsTM modernizes programmatic access to enterprise applications, ensures faster response to business demands, and facilitates secure transactions with partners using AWS.
General Availability for S3UtilsTM is expected at the end of Q4 2023.
Charting the Path Forward with NuWave:
NuWave Technologies emphasizes its commitment to innovation, as seen in the advancements of LightWave and S3UtilsTM. Our philosophy revolves around preserving the past while embracing the future, evident in the SOAPamⓇ compatibility mode. Looking ahead, At NuWave, we are committed to collaborating with our customers, fostering a partnership that drives innovation and shapes a technologically advanced future together.
As NuWave Technologies marks another milestone with passion, dedication, and a commitment to excellence, we invite customers to join us on this journey towards an exciting and limitless technological future.
