Open System Services (OSS) for Guardian Developers - U4159S


This class will provide you with the knowledge to use UNIX® commands and utilities and to develop applications in the Open System Services (OSS) environment on HPE NonStop Servers. The lectures and labs will focus on OSS basics, commands, utilities, and development tools. In addition, you will be introduced to OSS application programming interface (API) usage and the OSS sockets interface. This class is targeted at Guardian knowledgeable developers who want to obtain a thorough grounding in the OSS environment.

After you successfully complete this course, expect to be able to:
  • OSS file system basics
  • OSS architecture, commands, and utilities
  • OSS development environment
  • OSS API usage and sockets basics
