Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration
management services and solutions, announced today the general
availability of version 5.2 of Contivo™,
the company’s market-leading B2B/EAI solution for enterprise-ready data
transformation and semantic integration. This latest release of
Liaison’s patented enterprise data integration solution offers a new
Java object mapping feature, enhanced support of usage profiles,
functionality for ad hoc SQL queries, enhanced web service extensions
and overall improved database mapping capabilities.
Contivo VMS 5.2 minimizes the impact that integration imposes on
applications by maintaining each transformation map, including content
validation and format variations, regardless of sources, target
applications, platforms or adapter requirements. It eliminates the need
for new code development and allows mappings to be moved easily between
applications and platforms. Liaison’s Contivo
helps reduce reliance on a particular B2B/ERP platform vendor via a
central, semantics-based metadata repository that offers version control
and patented algorithms for collaborative design and execution. Its
powerful write-once, deploy-anywhere portability helps grow technology
infrastructures as business requirements demand.
Key new capabilities in Contivo VMS 5.2:
A Java Importer (available as an add-on) with Java object support
for greater speed and flexibility than traditional mapping.
Contivo VMS 5.2 can now move data in and out of a Java object graph,
and now supports mapping of Java object technologies such as JAXB
rather than traditional string mapping. The result is much higher
performance than with traditional mapping, very high data transfer
rates and a greater degree of flexibility within a single technology.
Java object mapping support can enhance existing SOA implementations
by significantly reducing the request/response time, and by allowing
maps to plug more readily into pure Java implementations.
Usage profiles that support the creation of new services when
managing large SOA structures, as part of the standard Contivo
Repository for all users. Usage profiles can help with impact
analysis and enhance the efficiency of service creation and
management, with dramatic improvements compared to the use of
spreadsheets. With the addition of usage profiles, Contivo can help
reduce complexity and increase visibility when working with XML
schemas and WSDLs.
General improvements that add support of ad hoc SQL queries to
database mapping, simplify web services mapping with WSDL 2.0 support,
and provide Map Intuition enhancements in the construction of business
rules in data transfers.
“Our strategy for Contivo has always been based on introducing
breakthrough capabilities that support the most complex integration
initiatives,” said Robert
Fox, Senior Director, Software Development at Liaison. “The new
version is a continuation of our efforts to simplify mapping through
expanded and increasingly flexible automation.”
