EAE on Windows

EAE on Windows

EAE on Windows

There has been some discussion on this board as well as other EAE discussion boards about the future of EAE in general and about the reliability of EAE applications running under Windows.

Microsoft just published a case study from my site, TIES, which hopefully can put some of these rumors to rest.

Some partial excerpts from the article which can be read in its entirety at:

The platform change was easy because the Unisys Enterprise
Application Environment, which is driven by the input of business rules rather than computing rules or languages, supports Windows-based application deployment. In fact, for several years TIES development has been done using EAE running on Windows operating systems, beginning with Microsoft Windows NT® operating system version 4.0.

"Even though we were creating our applications for the mainframe, our developers gained a better working environment running EAE on Windows NT, and later on Windows 2000," says Porcher. "Windows provides a much better user interface than working on a green-screen mainframe terminal."

.... future development will continue using EAE, but with a new version designed to work with the Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET 2003 development system.

Moving the TIES Student Information System to Unisys ES7000
enterprise servers running Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Server and SQL Server 2000 gives TIES a number of benefits, including:

20 percent maintenance savings.
Mainframe-class stability.
Existing software investment protection.
50 percent reduction in deployment costs.
30 percent lower database environment cost versus Oracle.
Easier manageability through scale-up solution.

"Windows 2000 Datacenter Server has proven to be bullet proof over the nearly two years since we've deployed it," Porcher says. "We haven't had a single operating system failure. On the hardware side, the ES7000 also has been faultless. This software and hardware combination provides the mainframe-class stability we require."
