Rogue Wave Introduces HydraExpress to Easily Leverage C++ Applications in SOA Development

Rogue Wave Reaches Out to Developers With Webinar to Explain How to Use Web Services With C++

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - February 26, 2008) - Rogue Wave Software, Inc., the leader in enterprise class C++ components and infrastructure, today introduced RogueWave® HydraExpress. HydraExpress provides a framework for developing and hosting high performance C++ Web Services to help developers modernize existing C++ applications.

HydraExpress is the next generation of Rogue Wave® LEIF, the most widely deployed, high-performance C++ Web Services product with over 100 customers worldwide. Developers can use HydraExpress for rapid enablement of Web Services for C++ and enables them to create flexible and interoperable SOA applications.

"Our healthcare customers depend on our decision support engine to deliver lifesaving answers within seconds. Using HydraExpress, SafeMed has been able to accelerate our ability to parse and process XML documents, providing the high performance our customers depend on," said Raghu Sugavanam, chief technology officer at SafeMed. "With the mission-critical nature of our C++ applications, we plan to maintain them well into the future, and are excited about Rogue Wave's solutions."

"Most modern IT organizations have significant deployments of C++, but new business requirements and the move to SOA is forcing many to weigh a "rip and replace" strategy against a significant code rewrite. Rogue Wave believes development teams should be able to modernize their existing apps without ever leaving the C++ code base," said Patrick Leonard, Vice President Engineering and Product Strategy at Rogue Wave. "HydraExpress is yet another demonstration of Rogue Wave's commitment to provide developers a complete C++ technology stack."
