The Gallagher & Robertson news pages are used to keep you updated on releases of G&R software products, and to inform you of significant new functionality or support for new hardware or software platforms.
Do you have news? We are happy to report news from our distributors or customers that might be of benefit to a wider audience.
Maintenance release 7.1.2 contains several enhancements we felt were important to get out into the field now rather than wait for the next major release of Glink. This is a rare exception to our normal policy of including only error corrections in maintenance releases.
We have set up a 'secured' Ggate DSA server to allow you to test the new Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) support in Glink. The secure Ggate allows you to make a secure connection from Glink to Ggate, and then access our 'G&R Distributors' demo application on GCOS8 in Phoenix.
There are many companies with huge investments in mainframe applications who remain convinced that establishing a Web presence for their applications will cost a fortune, and there are a great many Web development companies who are more than happy to confirm that, and charge the fortune.
The port of Gallagher & Robertson applications to Bull's Servers with Intel® Itanium processors is now available to selected customers. The complete product range will be generally available with AIX® 5L, 64-bit Linux® and Microsoft® Windows® Whistler, as soon as production versions of the operating systems for Itanium-based servers become available.
This exciting release includes the standard emulations you know from previous releases, plus a new, lower cost 'Open' product with only the ANSI, VTnnn and Minitel emulations for access to Open platforms.
The ANSI, VTnnn and Minitel emulations are of course included in the Bull DKU, VIP7800/VIP7700 and IBM 3270/5250 versions
This new release includes enhancements to Gweb Professional Edition and Gproxy Professional Edition. Gweb Professional Edition is further enhanced by the load balancing and license sharing support implemented in Gproxy Professional Edition.
In July 2000 Bull initiated a program in North America to introduce their customers to web-enablement of GCOS applications. The e-Business team chose G&R/Gweb Professional Edition, because it let them web-enable a typical application within days, with no changes in the GCOS application, and no programming effort anywhere.
Reinforcing an 18 year long cooperation between Bull and Gallagher & Robertson, G&R announces today that we will port our Gweb™, Ggate™ and Host Links™ applications to Bull's future line of Itanium™-based servers, that run the newest AIX® 5L (former 'Monterey/64'), 64-bit Linux and 64-bit Windows 2000
