Why Use HydraExpress For C++ Application Development?
An efficient IT infrastructure is critical to maintaining your competitive advantage. To keep this advantage, you must quickly adapt core business applications to respond to customer needs and market changes. That’s why you need HydraExpress to transform your legacy C++ applications and bring them into your service-oriented architecture (SOA).
With HydraExpress, you can deliver applications that are powerful and reliable enough to differentiate you from your competitors, yet flexible enough to evolve with rapidly changing business requirements.
Using HydraExpress improves developer productivity, so you can deliver effective, service-oriented applications on schedule and on budget. And you can do this while leveraging your existing investments where it makes sense. This reduces the need to rewrite, test, and optimize proven application logic.
Key C++ Application Development Features
High-Performance XML Parser
Containers For Hosting C++ Web Services
Automatic C++ Server Skeleton Generation (WSDL)
Automatic Web Service Client Generation (WSDL)
XML-to-C++ Binding Utility (XML Schema)
Expose Web Services
Message formats in HydraExpress are based on the simple object access protocol (SOAP), a widely accepted, easy-to-use mechanism for transferring messages over a network.
HydraExpress developers simply supply a standard web services description language (WSDL) file and HydraExpress automatically generates a skeleton service that handles the details of protocols, standards, and networking to ensure interoperability. Developers then drop in new or existing C++ business logic to create a ready-to-deploy service that can be used in many types of SOA applications.
With HydraExpress, developers can incorporate new standards or integration requirements without disrupting the rest of the application, as the business logic is completely isolated from the service infrastructure. This functionality enables developers to regenerate the skeleton service without changing the custom business logic.
Provide a Servlet Container
HydraExpress provides a servlet container, which is an easy way to expose your C++ business logic to the web.
HydraExpress provides a high-performance C++ servlet container allowing your C++ business logic to be exposed to the web. Users have complete control over the HTTP methods, message formats, and URL structure of their application, allowing them to match it to their wider SOA or microservices architecture.
The HydraExpress servlet container provides connectivity over HTTP, HTTPS, and AJP. This makes it easy to access from standard web clients in any language and expose existing C++ business logic as a part of a heterogeneous application.
Invoke Web Services
HydraExpress provides a robust code-generation framework for generating C++ proxy classes for interacting with web services. Web services implemented in any language and described using WSDL can easily be consumed in C++ through type safe proxy classes, allowing easy integration of new services within existing C++ applications.
HydraExpress web service proxies leverage the code-generated XML object model to support consuming and generating complex XML documents. HydraExpress provides support for a variety of message exchange patterns and transports. It also provides a comprehensive extension framework allowing users to extend it to support proprietary transports, protocols, and message transforms.
