Red Oak Software, Inc. ( announces the general availability of its HP Integrator product, the industry’s most advanced programmatic solution for Hewlett Packard e3000 legacy systems application integration. HP Integrator becomes the latest addition to Red Oak’s leading portfolio of Application Integration Framework™ products. Designed specifically to enable production host applications to be programmatically automated, it can be the essential factor in any integration project where HP applications are an important component.

Consisting of a high-level abstracted API and Runtime Server Module, Red Oak’s HP Integrator has been specifically designed for server-based implementation, with all of its benefits. The resulting solutions can be centrally managed and provide seamless connectivity and non-invasive integration with all HP e3000 legacy application systems.

Legacy HP production applications are notorious for being extremely difficult to integrate. The power of this unique technology lies in its innovative approach and the resource leverage it provides for integrating e3000-based applications. HP Integrator incorporates a straightforward, high-level API, which easily automates the steps necessary for bi-directional communication with the host system. Since access to all program logic and data is non-invasive, no changes are required to the host applications. The Runtime Server Module has been designed for fast, highly efficient and scaleable execution of those critical HP transaction integrations that require superior performance.

HP Integrator can also easily integrate e3000 legacy applications with a myriad of other systems, including business integration systems, application servers, IVR systems and any other Java system. Its Runtime Server Module executes concurrently with these server systems, binding them together into a seamless integration environment, communicating with the applications via the messaging event protocol. Solutions also can be implemented standalone.
