Unisys TransIT Open/OLTP Software is a suite of development tools and
runtime management software that provides transaction processing
extensions for Windows and Windows NT and UNIX based applications. 
Enterprises can quickly develop distributed and highly scaleable
business application systems, based on standard (X/Open and ISO)
high-level APIs, networks and protocols.  These applications can then
seamlessly blend the attributes of UNIX, Windows, Windows NT and
mainframe systems and can integrate and synchronize the many different
databases used on each of these platforms.  This Client/Server
middleware works with Microsoft or third party development tools and
includes the libraries for C, C++ or COBOL, plus Windows and Windows NT
Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs).  The Windows and Windows NT support also
includes OLE point-and-click features for application development.  On
every platform, these tools enhance normal data access (e.g., ODBC or
SQL) capabilities with transaction processing, naming/location services
and the store and forward (queuing) of messages.  Runtime environments
are highly tunable with the ability to locate and/or replicate server
applications as desired without any impact to the client applications.
Likewise, server applications are immune to client changes due to new
platforms, applications or interfaces.  For more information, please

telephone at +1-215-986-5765 or via email at  
JYACC is the maker of JAM 7, a cross-platform tool for building
client/server and distributed applications. It consists of a graphical
screen painter, its own scripting language called JPL, a Visual Object
Repository to allow creation of complex objects that can be shared
across screens and updated through inheritance, 100's of C library
function calls, and various tools and utilities.  JAM applications can
run unmodified on more than 100 platforms and operating environments,
including DOS, MS-Windows, Motif, OS/2 Presentation Manager, Macintosh,
VAX/VMS, and virtually every implementation of UNIX, both in
character-mode and in Motif. JAM also integrates seamlessly with more
than twenty of the most popular RDMBS products, including native drivers
for Oracle, Sybase, Informix, ODBC, DB/2, and others.  JAM works with
the leading Transaction Monitors, including Tuxedo, so that developers
can create true Three-Tier applications.  For more information, please

MAGNA X from Magna Software Corporation provides a safe growth path to the
open systems environments of the 1990's, a path that preserves and leverages
your existing IS investment.  MAGNA X is an open OLTP application
development system that simplifies growth into the complex world of
distributed computing involving PCs, UNIX servers, and mainframes.  MAGNA X
generates three-tier client/server TP systems, concentrating on the SERVER
portion of distributed systems. Services are generated for UNIX and/or
CICS/ESA;  Windows NT support has been announced. Unlike competing 3-tier
products, MAGNA X is strictly open.  There is no run-time software.
Industry-standard middleware (Encina, CICS, Tuxedo, Entera) is used for
connectivity.  Service programs are generated in COBOL and/or C++ (available
late '96) and are fully compiled, efficient.  Front-end clients can be
written in any language, including Power Builder, Visual Basic, Delphi,
Java, C or C++.  If PB or VB is used, MX "Wizards" automate the construction
of fully functional "test clients" with no programming required.  The MAGNA
X development environment is currently available on most major UNIX
platforms.  Oracle, DB2/AIX, DB2/MVS, Sybase and Informix are supported.
Local service and support is available in the U.S, Europe, Japan and Korea.
For more information:, or call 212/691-0300.

Dynasty is a true Enterprise Client/Server development environment.
It provides a truly Open solution, generating runtime-free C code,
native to the target platforms.  Presentation can be targeted at Windows
3.x/95/NT, OS/2, Motif and Macintosh.  Services can be automatically
partitioned in various ways, from standalone with the client, to out on
NT, OS/2, Unix or Tandem servers, with no limit to the number of tiers.
It is also possible to create servers that can be accessed from Visual
Basic, Powerbuilder and Internet clients.  Standard communication
protocols such as IMC and TCP/IP are supported, as well as Tuxedo for
more complex distributed applications requiring TP.  SQL for Oracle,
Sybase, Informix, SqlBase, Nonstop SQL, DB2/2, SQL Server and ODBC is
automatically generated, with the option to modify it if necessary.
For more information see where local country
information is also available.


Systemator is produced by Sysdeco, a well-known Scandinavian software
company. Systemator provides support for all phases of the
development process, from modeling through to implementation, 
testing and maintenance of information systems. Systemator
supports a wide range of machine platforms, database systems and 
user interfaces. Its powerful repository and conceptual modeling
abilities ensure cost effective development as well as much lower
maintenance costs. Thanks to its graphical dialog modeling and editing
tools, Systemator provides a powerful GUI prototyping capability which
greatly facilitates user involvement in the initial stage of
prototyping. In Systemator's model designer you can build abstract
models of the structure, the functions and the information of 
your enterprise. Data modeling is used for describing the structure of
the information handled by the organization. The data model is the
basis for generating both database structures and user dialogs. Such
an abstract model of the data ensures portability between several
database management systems and windowing systems.  More information is 
available on the WWW at
