NEON Systems, Inc., a leader in enterprise-class mainframe integration, announced the availability of Shadow z/Services, a SOAP-based mainframe integration solution that allows organizations to rapidly transform CICS, IMS and Advantage CA-IDMS applications into Web services.

Shadow z/Services' configuration can accelerate the development of mainframe Web services by eliminating the additional programming typically required with competing mainframe Web services products. Shadow z/Services' Studio interface eliminates the complexity of creating and implementing mainframe-based Web services, allowing Java and .NET developers to use existing skills and tools, increasing productivity and accelerating the ability to re-use mainframe resources in support of new business requirements.

Shadow z/Services includes several components and features designed to accelerate the development and deployment of mainframe Web services such as single-step configuration, dynamic introspection, microflow orchestration, zero programming and minimal impact on production environments, the Shadow z/Services Studio, a highly optimized SOAP parser, flexible security and support for complex data structures.

Shadow z/Services is generally available now through NEON's direct sales organization and NEON's worldwide network of distributors and resellers.
