                                  Abstract


As we measure our experience with Adabas in decades, there are many
basics that we forget. The first half of this class will cover selections from
Adabas Internals and Performance as well as Adabas utilities to help
remind us what we're supposed to know. Topics will include:
• reuse ds/isn
• tips on the Adaord utility and other select utilities
• basic internals workings
The second half will cover observations and tips on V8.
This presentation will cover some of the fundamentals of EntireX, using
EntireX Broker Services, and discuss various security options.

Topics covered will include;
• Overview of EntireX
• How to use EntireX to integrate with legacy applications
• Components of EntireX Communicator


o Configuration Options with Broker services


• Communication models used by EntireX
• Difference between Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) and the Advanced
Communicator Interface (ACI).
• How to use Units-of-Work and Persistence
• Integrating Security
o EntireX Security
o Interfacing with RACF, Top Secret, ACF2
o Trusted User Concept
o Natural Security
o SSL
o Encryption
This presentation will cover how to use EntireX with RPC Servers to
implement Web Services.

Topics covered will include;
• Overview of RPC
• Available RPC Servers
• Using RPC to achieve integrating goals
• Creating Web Services with EntireX Communicator
In the last couple of years it has increasingly become more important to
be able to access out mainframe Natural Adabas data from external
sources such as the Web and client applications. Natural RPC (Remote
Procedure Call) enables customers to invoke NATURAL subprograms
that reside on remote servers. The RPC mechanism provides a
transparent layer of communication between client and server
environments for existing user applications based on NATURAL. Natural
RPC exploits the advantages of client server computing.
In this class, you will learn what are the prerequisites and components
required to set up Natural RPC and how EntireX can connect Natural
services (subprograms) to clients with EntireX RPC.

In the last couple of years it has increasingly become more important to
be able to access out mainframe Natural Adabas data from external
sources such as the Web and also to be able to access and process Web
data sources such as Web Services from Natural.
In this class participants will learn how Natural, XML and Web Services
can be used to add value to your existing system by integrating data from
various data sources.

This session is a review of my experiences and thoughts as a Natural
Administrator for 20+ years. Computing has changed dramatically. Along
the way I've learned a few tricks and collected a few tools to help get the
most from the Natural environment.

But every business has unique policies and business requirements. Come
learn from my mistakes and victories, and share your war stories. Let us
share our "best practices", for all future Natural administrators; whether it
is for those new to Natural or for our own future benefit.

Developers can perform remote development and maintenance of
applications on any platform directly from the Windows desktop to reduce
time-to-market and cost-of-maintenance-while increasing quality. This
presentation will discuss: how to re-engineer very large and long-lived
business applications through versatile code analysis and restructuring,
how to enable code to be modularized for exposing the application as a
service to Web interfaces or other applications, remote debugging of
mainframe and Unix applications, maintenance of documentation objects,
model-based application generation, and much more.

This class serves as an introduction to Natural Business Services for
users who have developed with Construct in the past. We'll learn how we
can leverage the power of Construct code generation to create service
enabled applications using new features of Natural Business Services.
We'll also discuss how the products are combined together and how you
can still run Construct in stand-alone mode.

This presentation will highlight how SOA standards offer the ability to directly
and securely access ADABAS, Natural and other resources on the
mainframe from JAVA, .NET, PHP, RUBY or any other technology that can
consume a Web Service.
Natural resides on the most widely spread hardware platforms. In order to be
customized in the best possible way for the hardware and the operating
system, attention must be paid to a number of prerequisites. This
presentation gives a detailed overview of the different topics and the
influence that each topic has on the user. Audience: Administrator,

Adabas v8.1 will be arriving in several months! V8 will have many new and
exciting new features, such as: Large Objects, unlimited record sizes,
increase in the maximum number of occurrences for MU/PE fields,
increased number of physical and logical extents, and lots more. And what if
you found out that Adabas on the mainframe could be installed from a
CD??? Many of the same features for Adabas v8 on the mainframe will be
available with Adabas V5.1, along with non-descriptor searches, Unicode
support, Long Alpha fields, lots of utility changes and other enhancements.
Along with the new releases of Adabas, the Adabas Manager will be
released. The Adabas Manager is a web browser based version of the old
standby Adabas Online Services. Get a look at this new interface for the

can be used to analyze new releases of Natural and Adabas. By showing the
relative costs in cpu, io and throughput, each shop can make their own
decisions. The presentation ends by comparing the relative costs of various
access methods.

With the introduction of Multifetch as part of the Natural language, it is even
more critical for all involved to understand how Multifetch works, the
tradeoffs between doing it within the Natural language versus batch, and the
performance issues. This presentation will detail the internals involved, how
performance can be improved or destroyed and some guidelines on how to

The California Board of Equalization's (BOE) Integrated Revenue
Information System (IRIS) reengineering effort during the 1990's plus the
selection of EntireX for cross-platform messaging has BOE well positioned
for eServices. The IRIS effort converted multiple stand-alone systems into a
single ADABAS/NATURAL mainframe system with a normalized data model,
corporate database, and programming code that implemented object
oriented programming principals through the use of Construct and the
development of common objects. EntireX RPC is used primarily to expose
IRIS to mid-tier Java/Web applications. Additional mid-tier Java applications,
accessed via EntireX ACI, provide a standardized interface for mainframe
and/or mid-tier processes to: Microsoft Exchange LDAP queries, data
encryption, third-party Web Services via WSDL, e-mail composition and

assembler programmers on IBM 360 could legitimately state that they were
implementing services and thus a services oriented architecture and since
then, programmers on different platforms in different languages have been
doing the same thing. This session will get under the hype and get down to
what SOA really means and how it can really help in today's complex
environments and why. You should also come out of this session being able
to differentiate between SOA implementations that are 'proprietary' and
those that are truly open.

To attend this session, it would be useful to have some knowledge of
existing or more traditional approaches for application integration.
The agency of Health and Human Services within Commonwealth of MA has
invested in a SOA architecture to remove departmental Silos across the 15
agencies that operate under the agency. MassHealth IT, part of MassHealth
division, had developed a large number of departmental solutions that
exposed in a web wrapper some Natural/Abasas applications. Part of these
solutions were based on using the COM-PLETE http server, this allowed to
directly reuse Natural objects without using any middleware. This
presentation will demonstrate an architecture that will include the COM-
PLETE http server in an infrastructure that is not Software AG centric. The
architecture will allow to expose the solution implemented via the Http server
to both internal and external user, honoring architectural constrains such as
single sign-on, common look and feel and open standards based on web
services.


This session will go into more technical detail about the de facto standards
that are being used to day to implement truly interoperable systems as
against the proprietary SOAs that some organizations are offering. It will
discuss in more technical detail how the standards work and why. It will also
end in a short demo showing how the standards allow interoperability.

To attend this session, you should have some technical knowledge about
connecting applications and systems together and the problems there are
with today's 'traditional' methods to achieve this. Some knowledge of TCP/IP
and HTTP is also desirable.
