Micro Focus Server Express is the platform of choice for deploying e-business and distributed applications
Building Next Generation E-Business ApplicationsSpecifically designed for performance and reliability to support high-volume transaction processing applications, Micro Focus Server Express™ is the platform of choice for deploying e-business and distributed applications. Server Express accelerates enterprise COBOL application performance to the next level, providing the fastest ever Micro Focus COBOL® product for UNIX. Server Express helps to dramatically reduce deployment costs and provides increased service levels through state-of-the-art capabilities like AppTrack and FaultFinder.
Scaleable Solution for Enterprise Development and Deployment
Server Express can be combined with Micro Focus Net Express® to provide a highly productive GUI development environment on Microsoft Windows with the outstanding scalability of both NT and UNIX for deployment. Applications can be developed easily with Net Express and then rapidly deployed using Server Express. When used with Server Express, Net Express simplifies UNIX deployment through publishing to UNIX and remote debugging.
Improved Productivity and Application Support
Remote debugging and production debugging enhancements enable advanced e-business and Web applications to be debugged with ease, directly on the deployment server, making it easier to develop and deploy robust, high performing Web applications.
The introduction of OpenESQL™ in Server Express gives database and platform independent SQL access through ODBC with the simplicity of EXEC SQL statements. OpenESQL applications can be rapidly generated using the Net Express OpenESQL Assistant™ and easily deployed on the UNIX system of choice. This approach offers improved choice, increased productivity and great flexibility.
Server Express provides unlimited scalability, supporting COBOL data file sizes in the terabytes, enabling large-scale application development to support business growth into the next millennium.
Quickest Path To 64-bit Application
Server Express was designed for today's 32-bit and 64-bit operating system architectures. With Server Express (64-bit Edition), you are just one simple step away from a 64-bit COBOL application!
Compatible with Existing Micro Focus UNIX Applications
Server Express was specifically engineered to be compatible with existing Micro Focus COBOL applications. Most applications only require recompilation to take advantage of the advanced performance and capabilities of Server Express.
State-of-the-Art COBOL Compiler
Server Express includes a state-of-the-art compiler that builds on COBOL's traditional strengths by providing:
Server Express is built using the latest Micro Focus COBOL callable shared object technology. This new executable format provides fast execution and delivers immediate productivity gains. With Server Express, you can also take advantage of this powerful new format by recompiling your existing COBOL application, enabling your multi-user application to run faster and perform better.
Advanced Debugging Support Using Animator®Server Express provides debugging capabilities needed to find and resolve problems in code quickly. Animator within Server Express provides:
Once you have determined what caused an error in the program, you can edit it quickly and easily with a single keystroke - Server Express Animator is fully integrated with the Server Express full screen source code Editor.
COBOL For The Web
Server Express brings the power of COBOL to the Internet by enabling COBOL programs to process HTML forms dynamically using familiar ACCEPT/DISPLAY syntax or embedded HTML. This allows you to develop and debug portable Web server applications that can be targeted at many different production platforms. There's no need to invest in, or use, any other server scripting language -- you can do it all in COBOL!
High-Performance Web Applications
A key element for providing optimum performance on today's web servers is the ability to create executables that exploit all the performance capabilities of the production server. Server Express enables you to do this very easily by providing simple compile and link directives so, from a single source stream, an application can be built for deployment as a:
Using COBOL with Java
Server Express provides the ability to deploy applications that support COBOL/Java interoperability created using the wizards in Micro Focus Net Express. Applications can be created and deployed without the programmer Java Native Interface (JNI) APIs.
When applications fail in production you often cannot use your regular debugging techniques to locate the problem. You don't have the source code available or you cannot easily reproduce the problem. FaultFinder is designed to provide you with the help you need in these critical situations. It provides you with a snapshot of your application just at the point where the application failed, and provides fully configurable and comprehensive fault diagnostic information including:
FaultFinder has been extended so it can be used before a problem has occurred. It can be invoked from an active program via a call statement or from the command line to be attached to an active process. In addition to the information listed above, FaultFinder also reports on memory allocation and usage by the various modules in the application.
