For more than a decade the Liechtensteinische Landesbank has been successfully using ADSplus for their mainframe applications. The applications, developed using ADSplus, form the backbone for both the Liechtensteinische Landesbank’s internet and GUI applications.
The Liechtensteinische Landesbank has used ADSplus to develop a complete banking solution that runs on IBM VSE. The application comprises 1700 batch programs and 2,400 online programs. Around 1,500 of these online programs are Delta OSP transactional programs. A further 900 programs, also generated with ADSplus, provide services that are used by GUI clients developed using Smalltalk. The same services are also used by the Liechtensteinische Landesbank for their Windows-based internet banking solution. The secret behind their success is that the Liechtensteinische Landesbank develops the service once using ADSplus and then generates them for both IBM VSE and for Microsoft Windows.
“Without ADSplus we would never have been able to develop and port the GUI client/server and Internet solutions so quickly and efficiently – from Microsoft MS-DOS to IBM OS/2 and then onto Microsoft Windows!”
