MyEclipse Sees Green, Announces Near-Zero Carbon Footprint Initiative

Flower Mound, TX (PRWEB) August 6, 2008

Genuitec, LLC, the leading provider of the popular MyEclipse integrated development environment (IDE) and a founding member of the Eclipse Foundation, announced today their commitment to being a company with a near-zero carbon footprint.

“Genuitec has been an environmentally-conscious organization since its inception,” said Maher Masri, CEO for Genuitec. “We’re happy to publicly address our commitment to minimize our impact on the environment as well as provide our customers with a great product and dollar value. By doing so, we’re able to address the two pressing issues of the day: economic uncertainty and environmental responsibility.”

Genuitec demonstrates their commitment to environmental responsibility in many ways. First, as a virtual organization, Genuitec does not contribute to gas pollution by requiring employee commute times. It also eliminates the high energy costs of maintaining an office space. Second, all Genuitec company communications, conferences, meetings and Webinars are virtual, which makes the organization practically paperless and minimizes further environmental impact. Third, by providing downloaded products and not physical media, Genuitec is able to save plastic wastes and virtually eliminate mailing/delivery costs and materials. All of these efforts combined means Genuitec saves over 70 metric tons of CO2 per year from entering the atmosphere.

As a participant in many conferences across the world, Genuitec does create a carbon footprint through air and auto travel – two of the largest culprits in greenhouse gas emissions. To offset this factor, Genuitec has joined with the CarbonFund.org Foundation to become a “CarbonFree Business”, certifying Genuitec’s full carbon offset. By participating in carbon offsetting, Genuitec invests in clean, renewable energy and negates the environmental impact of corporate travel and other ancillary business emissions.

“Sustainability should concern companies of all different shapes and sizes, which need to make clear, auditable commitments to lowering their carbon footprint,” said James Governor, Principle Analyst at RedMonk. “Even software businesses have an impact, which is why it’s good to see Genuitec’s leadership here, with its ‘measure, then manage, then reduce’ strategy.”

Additionally, Genuitec is offering a special to anyone attending the MyEclipse training track at EclipseWorld. Genuitec will donate to the CarbonFund.org organization to offset any carbon footprints created as a result of traveling to the Washington D.C. area for the conference. Save some green by registering with the code “genuitec” and save $ 100 off your full-access passport and make the world a bit greener as well.

eCube Systems Announces Release and General Availability of NXTera 6.0 High Performance RPC Middleware


Houston, TX (Vocus) April 27, 2010

eCube Systems?, a leading middleware products and modernization company, announced the release of NXTera 6.0 High Performance RPC Middleware. This comprehensive release includes a broad array of new features that simplify the development and management of cross-platform distributed applications. NXTera 6.0 also streamlines the replacement of legacy RPC middleware in distributed applications built in Delphi, PowerBuilder and Visual Basic with optional support for Web services.

RPC middleware is the backbone of distributed programing that is the case whether you are talking about todays Web services or legacy client-server applications based on technologies like Entera, says Kevin Barnes, CEO of eCube Systems. NXTera 6.0 delivers a new standard in high performance RPC middleware by improving existing capabilities and expanding support for contemporary technologies including Eclipse, Web services, virtualization and Linux.

The new release of NXTera 6.0, available today, includes several new and updated features.

Simplified RPC Development

NXTera 6.0 includes an Eclipse-based workbench that simplifies the creation and maintenance of distributed business logic and their corresponding client interfaces. Utilities and wizards support distributed RPC, .NET and SOAP development with C, COBOL, FORTRAN and Java. These tools encapsulate expertise and technical “know-how” in an IDE that automates the generation of Web services interfaces and new client stubs for Java, C# and Python/Jython.

Runtime Management Tools

A major new component in NXTera 6.0 is NXTminder, a platform-independent application management tool. It is designed to simplify runtime operation, while increasing the dependability of enterprise applications built on distributed services. NXTminder easily replaces the NetMinder, Appminder and AppCenter, distributed application management tools that are commonly used to manage the availability of Entera and CORBA RPC applications.

Java Middleware Implementation

Much of the new development completed with NXTera 6.0 will be done with the new all Java RPC runtime and broker implementations. These core technologies services enable cross-platform integration, communication and the dynamic discovery of distributed components. NXTera 6.0 is certified on zLinux, Redhat, Suse, MacOS/X, OpenVMS, Irix and all contemporary versions of UNIX.

Enhanced Operation — New Data Highlights

The new NXTera persistent broker with Network Address Translation, makes it easier to implement cost saving virtualization solutions with legacy RPC applications. This is a powerful benefit when using distributed apps on a VPN over the Internet. Additionally, NXTera 6.0 adds a native MySQL data access server and well as an updated JDBC version that improves speed and flexibility. By adding support for Protocol Buffers, the data serialization format developed by Google, NXTera provides a standardized binary format that increases the speed at which data can be moved between application components and distributed Web services.

Modernize Distributed Client-Server Application

Many client-server applications built with Visual Basic, PowerBuilder and Delphi were based on RPC middleware such as Entera, EZRPC and others. NXTera 6.0 provides a powerful upgrade path for these applications. In the case of Entera, NXTera 6.0 provides a plug-and-play replacement solution that supports existing application clients and adds Java, .NET and Web services support. These capabilities enable server-side logic implementations to move to virtual machines and up-to-date operating systems, including zLinux on the IBM mainframe platform. Additionally, eCube offers a range of options for modernizing the presentation layer of Client-Server applications.

About NXTera

NXTera 6.0 is next generation multi-threaded RPC middleware that is fully compatible with the highly respected Entera middleware platform. NXTera is widely used in Fortune 1000 companies around the world, proven to deliver enterprise class service on many platforms including: Solaris?, AIX?, HP-UX?, Linux, Windows, zOS and OpenVMS.
