Unisys ClearPath OS 2200 RAD for Python Environments enables you to rapidly develop applications written in the Python programming language that are integrated with the Unisys ClearPath OS 2200 operating environment.
Python is a modern, open source programming language enabling you to work quickly, do rapid prototyping and implement complex algorithms.
Jython is a Python implementation that is tightly integrated with the Java platform. Unisys has developed Java-based resource adapters to access OS 2200 Relational Database Server (RDMS) and DMS databases, as well as TIP transactions from Java applications.
IronPython is an Open-source implementation of the Python programming language that is tightly integrated with the Microsoft .NET Framework.
ClearPath OS 2200 RAD for Python Environments is a toolbox that includes code samples and documentation. It shows you how to use IronPython, Jython and Unisys middleware to develop applications written in the Python language and integrate those applications with resources in the OS 2200 environment.
Jython, can be used within Unisys ClearPath OS 2200 IDE for Eclipse to model OS 2200 file access, OS 2200 RDMS and DMS database interaction, and the execution of TIP/HVTIP transactions from a Jython script.
The IronPython implementation accesses OS 2200 resources using Application Integration Services (AIS).
Application integration APIs, also provided by ClearPath Application Integration Services, enable applications to call libraries in the ClearPath OS 2200 environment. The APIs support OS 2200 libraries written in the COBOL85, ALGOL, and NEWP languages.
ClearPath Application Integration Services provides transaction integration APIs that enable applications to initiate transactions in the ClearPath OS 2200 environment under the control of the TIP Transaction Server.
