Re: Screen Scraping ?



fixed


Thanks Richard, unfortunately when I try my (this) e-mail address, it
returns a false answer, which is incorrect.

Hi Booth - I am in the process of doing something similar. I thought
about
the introductory e-mail, but how doe you know it fails, and that it fails
due to a incorrect e-mail address, and not due to an e-mail server not
being up and running?

Could you consider sending an introductory e-mail immediately, from the
iSeries?  If it fails, you know you have a bad one?

We have an issue with sales reps entering invalid email addresses

our database (forgetting the ".com", missing "@" sign, etc.).  When
we
send emails from the iSeries, we filter these out.  But we would like
to
prevent them going in wrong in the first place, preferably by
alerting
the rep at the point of entry so they can enter a correct address
instead.

Since we are using 3rd party software, we don't have control over the
code, so our IT Director has suggested "screen scraping" as a
possible
solution. I did some Googling and poked around in the Midrange
archives
a bit, but I'm not sure that screen scraping will do what we're
looking
for.

Is it possible to write a PC application that can intercept entries
being made into a 5250 emulator intelligently enough to be able to
edit
the input and interrupt the transmission to the iSeries if there is
an
error ?  If there were, wouldn't this involve "web-facing" the entire
green screen application ?

Thoughts ?
