Profound to Announce Commercial Release of Profound.js 2.0 with Connector and Enhanced JumpStart Module

At COMMON 2016, Profound announced our initial plans to support Node.js for IBM i modernization with a new product, Profound.js. At this year's conference, we're expanding the capabilities of our Node.js products with the release of Profound.js 2.0.

"Node.js is one of the most exciting things to happen to IBM i in a long time," says Profound Logic CEO, Alex Roytman. "Node is a natural fit for our existing technology at Profound Logic and we are embracing it in a big way."

Node.js is server-side JavaScript, the most popular coding language in the world, and runs natively on the IBM i platform. Additionally, Node.js supports an agile, iterative approach to IBM i modernization that avoids other risky, costly efforts, such as re-writing in another language or migrating away from the IBM i platform altogether. Profound.js provides a toolset to leverage Node.js to modernize legacy business applications on IBM i.

"The benefits of using Node.js on IBM i are numerous," says Roytman. "With Profound.js, companies will be able to integrate new or converted Node.js applications with their existing RPG applications, as well as open up a whole new world of open-source possibilities on IBM i, including Watson and Internet of Things. They will be able to retain their existing IBM i investment while enjoying the latest in cutting edge business capabilities. It really is the best of both worlds."

When Profound.js was first announced in 2016, it was offered as part of a services engagement for RPG-to-Node.js Conversion. Profound.js 2.0 will be available as a standalone, downloadable product and include the following new modules:

  • Free Node.js Framework and Visual Designer
  • Commercial Connector module that provides connectivity to IBM i resources like DB2, programs, commands, service programs, and operating system API.
  • Enhanced JumpStart module (available with Profound UI) that enables users to automatically generate Node.js code, as well as modern RPG and PHP code.
