ORACLE SERVICE ARCHITECTURELEVERAGING TUXEDO
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Web services calls to andfrom Oracle Tuxedo (includesextensible data mapping)
MTOM support for binary data
WS-Security implementation(for username profile)
XML schema for custombuffer types
Support for multiple encodingwith SOAP messages
Enhanced data reporting inerror situationsBENEFITS
Increase performance speedby 75 percent versus Java-based Web services offerings.
Enable interoperability amongdistributed applications thatspan diverse hardware andsoftware platforms.
Simplify access toapplications using Webprotocols.
Facilitate the development ofheterogeneous distributedapplications with a cross-platform, cross-language datamodel (XML).
Lower your TOC byleveraging existing IT assetswithout the need for costlyrewrites.
Oracle Service Architecture Leveraging Tuxedo (SALT) is astandards-based, bidirectional Web-services gateway supportingenterprise applications written in legacy programming languagesincluding C, C++, and COBOL. Using this solution, you can accessexisting Oracle Tuxedo services as standard Web services. Inaddition, Oracle Tuxedo applications can call external Web services(outgoing WS calls) using SOAP over HTTP protocol with a high- performance, easy-to-use, and configuration-driven model. Theresult is widespread access to applications using Web protocols,along with interoperability among distributed applications that spandiverse hardware and software platforms.
SOA-Enable Oracle Tuxedo Applications Without Recoding
Oracle SALT allows organizations to integrate mission-critical applications
writtenin C, C++, and COBOL into service-oriented architectures (SOA) without costlyrewrites to Java or Microsoft .NET. Leveraging a configuration-driven approacheliminates the need for programming changes and allows companies to use existingenterprise assets and to lower their total cost of ownership (TCO).Oracle SALT provides the ability to support heterogeneous composite applicationdevelopment without complex enterprise application-integration products. Thisremoves the need to keep applications written in C, C++, and COBOL current withother enterprise applications, freeing IT departments to shift resources to more-strategic, business-driven projects.Because it is a native Oracle Tuxedo Web service, Oracle SALT reduces theconversion process that might exist with other solutions for accessing OracleTuxedo services.
Create an Extensible Web Services Architecture
The SOA nature of Oracle SALT and Oracle Tuxedo lets enterprises developcomposite (or hybrid) end-to-end solutions that combine the availability andscalability of Oracle Tuxedo with the extensibility of Java. Uniting these twoapplications simplifies a broad spectrum of transaction-processing solutions viapowerful, standards-based APIs. With a high-performance, easy-to-use,configuration-driven model for bidirectional Web services integration, developerscan publish existing Oracle Tuxedo services as standard Web services using theSOAP over HTTP/S protocol.
