|Title||A very short introduction to Cryptography using a Rexx API for the 4758 IBM PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor|
|Abstract||A control program for a dedicated Internal Audit Windows 2003 server was written in Rexx. It controlled collection of Audit records from a mainframe environment. After compression an enciphering the Records are kept safe on the server with backups to TSM. On request by Audit programs the Auditor receives deciphered an decompressed data. The crypto engine is an IBM 4758 Crypto Coprocessor. Enabling Coprocessor functionality in Rexx was the challenge.|
|Title||Orde! with Rexx|
|Speaker||Michiel van Hoorn|
|Abstract||Orde! is the name of a concept and tooling for structuring information. It was developed to organize all data gathered during a system development project and to produce design documents. It can also be used as a prototyping tool.
Orde! is comprised of a modeling concept, a repository structure, a semi-formal description language, a cross reference engine and several output generators. The output can be generated to a website, a Word or Html document or to Wiki.
Orde! has been developed using Rexx and exploits in particular its associative arrays. The Orde! program has 35.000 lines of code.
|Title||PP - the Program Porting Machine|
|Abstract||Thomas will demonstrate the current state of his Program Porting Machine PP. PP is implemented in NetRexx, and has been designed to support the various tasks involved in the translation of various Computer Languages like Rexx, COBOL, or PL/I to NetRexx. Also, the translation of IBM PL/I DL/I based databases to DB2 will be covered. The Presentation will cover the overall design of PP and the current stage of implementation.|
|Title||The 2010 Edition of BSF4Rexx|
|Abstract||A new version of ooRexx is pending and slated to be released for Christmas 2010. This presentation introduces the improvements and new features that become available to Rexx and ooRexx programmers.|
|Title||Use Rexx and ooRexx from its Java-based Sibling NetRexx|
|Abstract||NetRexx brings the easy Rexx syntax to the Java table: one can create programs using the well established Rexx principles, which are compiled to Java byte code. Because of the Rexx syntax principles, creating portable applications becomes considerably easier than in Java itself.
However, some features that have become known and valued in the Rexx and ooRexx world are missing from NetRexx: e.g. easy addressing of the environment, interpreted execution of Rexx and ooRexx code, taking advantage of functionality existing in form of Rexx and ooRexx programs.
This presentation introduces and demonstrates how one can execute Rexx and ooRexx programs directly from NetRexx. It will also demonstrate how NetRexx programmers can directly interact with ooRexx objects sending, ooRexx messages directly to ooRexx objects from NetRexx!
|Abstract||Mark discusses recent developments in the latest versions of his toolset for Rexx.|
|Title||Building NetRexx Systems|
|Abstract||The developer has several options for building application systems from classes. This presentation will elaborate on the different approaches and will show the usage of various tools to accomplish this goal.|
