Actually applications are using a software called Rumba to connect ASP application with Natural/Adabas application. This application has about five years and now I have to construct a new version using .NET with EntireX.
Rumba works writing and reading data in mainframe screen and the documentaion I read about EntireX show a different way to access mainframe application.
If I understand correctly I have to install a RPC Natural and create a .NET application to access this RPC. I’m right ? In Natural I have to develop code or only install RPC. How can I call a Natural program ?
I already serach for a course in Brazil and can’t find. Can you helpme ?
Yes you need to
- Install an RPC-server on the MF and attach that to the EntireX broker
- Install on your local windowsmachine Visual Studio and the .NET stuff
- Install the EntireX SDK
From the EntireX Workbench (Eclipsebased) you can access the RPC-server and through that look at all subprograms available from the server.
You can the selecet the ones you want to access, extract the parameter-areas to an “IDL” file and then generate a .NET class that has methods corresponding to all the Natural Subprograms you selected.
As soon as you have all the componenents installed and configured: “Life is relly easy !!!”
Have a look in the documentation for installation stuff.
