CoSTAR Features

CoSTAR does a terrific job with creating a windows interface for your legacy application, BUT that’s only the beginning...

We are not just another pretty face on your legacy application. The real power within the CoSTAR product line is in how we integrate your host based applications with contemporary Windows based applications including SQL, Exchange and Excel.

CoSTAR integration gives you the power to:

  • Enable high-end Windows / Windows Application integration without expensive re-writes or porting of your core legacy application.
  • Connect databases. CoSTAR gives you ability to access and display data from independent data sources in the same window as data from legacy or proprietary databases.
  • Provide the ability to share information and business logic between previously non-integrated systems such as market and supplier applications, as well as legacy databases and Microsoft implementations. Most legacy applications go through business case calculations before they display data. CoSTAR has the singular ability to share this business logic within the same window as your Microsoft implementation.
  • Perform multi sessioning. CoSTAR gives you the ability to perform ADO or DAO calls to an ODBC compliant database and to interact that data with the legacy, proprietary database, all within the CoSTAR Window environment.
  • Use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) between your legacy application and emerging Windows based path.
