The applications program that running on Operating System has high dependence. Because environment of OS and standard libraries that supports are different. For those reason, Applications that perform the same function should be implemented in accordance with the new operating system. This results in a temporal and economic waste not only in subsequent maintenance of application but also in management. Even though, to solve this problem Cygwin or MinGW has been distributed, they do not support the portability of the application but provide a virtual environment and the tool. Therefore, in this paper, we design the wrapper format interface middleware using the POSIX and standard C library to support the application performing the same function on virtual environment and without code modification. The middleware can be selectively loading the API that is classified by basic and extend. This allows to managing the application size efficiently. Also, perform the comparative experiments and performance evaluation for application, on equipped with the Interface Middleware Linux, Unix, Windows and on Cygwin.
