High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles TCPware is a third party
layered product published by "Process Software LLC" to add TCP/IP
capabilities to OpenVMS. The need for such a product may seem
obvious today but back in the early 1990s Digital Equipment
Corporation (who published VMS as it was known at the time) had an
internal policy favoring their own product called DECnet.
Meanwhile, many VMS users in governments, large corporations and
universities were discovering the "TCP/IP based" internet and
required third party software enable connectivity to it. Today,
HP's "TCPIP Services for OpenVMS" is putting pressure on products
like TCPware. One reason why TCPware hasn't faded into oblivion is
due to two TCPware APIs called "the Telnet Library" and "the FTP
Library." These modules allow a relatively inexperienced programmer
to use a high level language to write software which will connect
across the internet and do useful work. Also, quite a bit of legacy
software now relies on these modules with no good reason to rewite
them at the lower "packet library" level.
