Cross-Platform Application Development Solution That Requires No

Blue Lobster Software, a leading provider of legacy-to-Web connectivity technology, announced today the signing of a partnership agreement with Synkronix Inc., a leading provider of innovative technological solutions for legacy applications.
The agreement will enable Blue Lobster Software to provide mainframe developers with unique cross-platform connectivity and application development solutions, rounding out its offerings for re-engineering legacy applications and strengthening its position as a leader in Web-to-host technology.
Within the last year, Blue Lobster Software has released two products that mark a departure from traditional Web-to-mainframe tools and applications that require proprietary servers and scripting languages. Mako Server(TM) and Stingray Software Development Kit (SDK (Software Developer's Kit) See developer's toolkit and Windows SDK.
SDK - Software Developers Kit (or "Software Development Kit"). )(TM) set a new standard for Web-to-mainframe connectivity and both products have been certified 100% Pure Java(TM) by Sun Microsystems.
Together, these tools offer a choice of either connecting to the mainframe via 3270 terminal emulation, or connecting directly to CICS (Customer Information Control System) A TP monitor from IBM that was originally developed to provide transaction processing for IBM mainframes. It controls the interaction between applications and users and lets programmers develop screen displays without through ECI ECI Employment Cost Index
