Building Client/Server Applications

MiddleMan is a powerful software development tool designed for building client/server applications for the HPe3000. MiddleMan combines the freedom, flexibility and distributed processing power of the PC with the centralized control and maintenance of host systems.

Server Console: Use the Server Console application to manage the MSJOB.

Network File Transfer: Use Network File Transfer to improve your PC uploads and downloads to network speed.

References: Notes from customers extremely pleased with Minisoft tech support.


  • Direct Image and TurboImage database access. Developers can design applications that read, write, delete and update databases, KSAM or MPE files.
  • No terminal emulation software is required to use applications developed with MiddleMan as no session is needed on the HP 3000.
  • Includes a server program that can be customized to meet the needs of specific applications.
  • MiddleMan supports the concurrent use of multiple server programs.
  • Powerful trace and debugging facility for application testing and error correction.
  • A network file transfer facility is included and can be used simultaneously with multiple server programs.
  • MiddleMan is accessible from a variety of Windows-based applications, including Visual Basic, Visual C, PowerBuilder, Delphi, COBOL, Excel, WordPerfect, Lotus and many other applications that support DDE or OLE.
  • With MiddleMan you can leverage the power of both the server and the client to easily integrate your mission-critical applications with the desktop tools already in use.

NOTE: If you have MPEiX 4.0, MiddleMan requires HP's ThinLAN Link on the HP e3000 (product #36923A ThinLAN 3000/iX Network Link). ThinLAN link is included in all later (5.0, 5.5, 6.0) MPEiX versions.
