Flynet Viewer Studio WS Web Services Generator for Mainframe iSeries UNIX VMS and MultiValue

The Flynet Viewer Studio WS (Web Services) is a WYSIWYG W3C WebService generator for Mainframe, iSeries, Unix, VMS and Multivalue systems. It transforms your host environment into a dynamic component of your business systems interface layer, normally confined to the transaction layer of the enterprise, these new tools will unleash your investment in your host system to freely interact with and feed tertiary business systems, increasing the availability, timeliness and integrity of key business data.

Flynet Viewer Studio WS creates W3C compliant web services to any back end systems, Mainframe, iSeries, Unix and Multivalue, unlocking the world of big data to organisations with data that sits in both heritage and contemporary business systems.

We used Flynet Viewer Studio WS to quickly create over 300 web services that enabled us to interact with data from a variety of both quantitative and qualitative back end systems. This was an extremely quick process that enabled us to unlock the agility of an SOA architecture but built in a brown field setting. David Camen – Senior PM, Grange, Garett and Olson.

In addition to your heritage system Flynet Viewer Studio WS's DataConnect module can dynamically create web services for all systems that can be accessed via an ODBC connection, what's more Flynet Viewer Studio WS can capture real time Host system embedded data and add that to a commonly accessible set of web services that can then give you the freedom to enjoy all the benefits of a truly Service Oriented Architecture.

Flynet Viewer Studio WS allows you to completely repaint how you work with your back end systems giving you the agility to think outside of the constraints of any one systems interface. This allows organisations to easily embrace a myriad of value driven technologies from mobile and app style interfaces to tertiary hosted and third party delivered processes.

Multi-threaded Robust Server that runs as a standard Windows Service

A single Flynet Server installation can support over 500 simultaneous clients (250 is recommended for high usage scenarios) at speeds which surpass the desktop equivalent solution. In addition, the multi-threaded core at the heart of the Flynet Viewer server platform ensures a minimum network footprint, unburdening heavily trafficked networks. Flynet Viewer server runs on Windows Server (2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2 and on Azure).

The Flynet Server code was never part of a desktop terminal emulator; from its origins it was designed to be a highly efficient multi-threaded server side core service. This means that Flynet Viewer can support more concurrent sessions on any given server configuration than any other browser delivered emulation solution.

Security

All Flynet Viewer communications made between the server and host are made over a telnet connection secured by a SSL/TLS wrapper. All Flynet Viewer communications made between the application server and the client are primarily conducted using WebSockets and where this is not supported HTTPs is used.

  • Supports Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v3.0 and TLS v1.0 SSL) encryption.
  • Provides SSL authentication using digital client certificates, user generated as well as third party. Standard authentication technology is built into Flynet Viewer.
  • FIPS 140-2 Validated Cryptographic Module .
  • Supports NT domain authentication / Active Directory / Azure Directory authentication.
  • Supports most off the shelf and proprietary IAM and SSO solutions with templates available for integration.

Comprehensive .NET API Library

Applications that utilize the Flynet Emulation Service, such as the FVTerm Pure Web Terminal Emulator Web Application, do so with the Flynet ViewerLib .NET Application Programming Interface.

By the use of shared memory and native Windows Synchronization objects, the performance of the API through all ranges of application challenges is unsurpassed.

The functionality and proven performance of the API has been strengthened through a decade of directly developing customer applications with the API by Flynet, as well as creating application generators that leverage its power.
