NetBase Client

Intuitive APIs enable direct legacy system/open system interfacing

Control data sharing across the network from a central console

With NetBase™ Client, your users can share data across the network from a central console. It enables your legacy systems to interface with open systems and uses NetBase caching to speed up access and reduce your overhead costs. With NetBase Client, you can easily reengineer existing applications or create client/server applications. It helps you cut development time in half by offering a complete set of APIs that give DOS, Unix, and Windows 95/NT client/server applications direct read-and-write access. This access is enabled through standard 16 or 32-bit TurboIMAGE, OMNIDEX, or MPE intrinsic calls to data residing in KSAM files, MPE files and TurboIMAGE databases on HP 3000 systems. It allows you to quickly implement applications that are tightly integrated with existing HP 3000 systems using simple recompiles with DLLs (e.g., Sybase, Oracle, Informix,  Excel, COBOL, Visual Basic, PowerBuilder, Microfocus or any other DOS/UNIX/Windows tools available). It uses the NBRPC interface to execute RPC calls on HP 3000 systems.

  • Allows logical transactions in client/server environments using DBXBEGIN/DBXEND intrinsics
  • Makes remote procedure calls to load and execute
  • Works with a number of client/server development packages


  • Any HP 3000 computer with any HP-supported network
  • Additional HP-provided software required for some modules
