Author / 6/12/2014 / 3 Software AG What is NBS? Combination of Existing Products Construct Spectrum Natural Studio Provide Development tools and Run-Time infrastructure Supports Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Ability to develop a Business Service using Natural Services are composed of existing or new subprogram and Natural data area definitions Services have business methods and belong to business domains NBS has a repository to contain service meta-data.
Author / 6/12/2014 / 4 Software AG Terminology Business Service – a logical definition that comprises repository entries and Natural objects Service Repository – Natural/Adabas based repository that stores the definition of a Business Service. Also groups services and defines/stores security definitions Service Runtime – facilitates access to services, service repository and server code generation. Consists of both a client and server (Natural) component Client Proxy – A Java or.NET class that can invoke a Business Service Server Proxy – Natural subprogram that connects service subprograms to the Service Runtime Plug-in – An additional tool included in development IDEs that allow developers to create Business Services and Proxy's Proxy Wizard – A Wizard accessible from a plug-in that generates proxy source code. Service Wizard – Generates Natural code and repository entries to enable a business service

Author / 6/12/2014 / 13 Software AG Creating Rich GUI Interfaces Using Application Composer / Designer
Author / 6/12/2014 / 14 Software AG New Transform Model – BROWSE to OBJECT- BROWSE Transforms BROWSE model generated program into: Object-browse-subp Object-browse-dialog Object-browse-dialog-driver Separation of presentation and business/data logic. Transformation highlights Field and File names need to be replaced with PDA names General search and replace of common converted code Customers can add their own conversion rules
