DataPower passes HTTP test, offers MQ Series support

Staff report

DataPower Technology Inc., Cambridge, Mass., announced this week that its XML gateway and network accelerator devices have passed industry Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) /1.1 compliance tests. The company also said its products now offer support for IBM Corp.'s WebSphere MQ protocol.

The tests were part of the Co-Advisor protocol compliance and robustness test suite developed by The Measurement Factory Inc., Boulder Colo. With HTTP compliance, DataPower said it can prove to customers that its XML-aware network devices meet the standard for transparent operation within heterogeneous networks for Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and XML communications over HTTP. Those devices are DataPower's XS40 XML Security Gateway and XA35 XML Accelerator.

DataPower also said that it has signed a licensing agreement with IBM that gives customers of IBM's WebSphere MQ product (formerly MQ Series) access to the XML acceleration and Web services security features in DataPower's devices. Support for MQ also makes it possible to use the XS40 gateway as a wire speed gateway between internal MQ-based Web services and external HTTP, according to DataPower. The integration is available immediately as an optional part of firmware Release 2.3.
