RE: iSeries Access for Web questions



fixed

I'm not sure at this juncture. I remember that when my client bought it, I
thought it was very reasonable.

Any Idea on the costs of Newlook software?

You should be OK, then. You can do some nice stuff for them with ISAW. I
have one client who rolled it out to some people who grumbled about
green
screen. They quit grumbling.

I have another one who went the route of newlook software. The CFO who
told
the IT manager to go to a windows system now brags that he has a windows
system that never needs to be rebooted, and he got it for a song. Far be
it
for the IT manager to burst his bubble. :-))

So am I taking this wrong looking for 5250 in a browser, and nothing
more?
Management has specifically cut off *any development on this software -
all
they are asking is portal access for the iSeries Access users.

The only caveat I'd offer here is don't take this request lightly.

You say "No desire to make a big project out of this. Old apps on
their
way
out the door." Implying that this access is no big deal and possibly
even
unimportant and maybe short term.

But I've seen little projects like this, which are only supposed to be
around for a few months, still running after 5 years. Only now they
bear
little resemblance to the original "no big deal" request because the
users
got used to it, decided they liked it, and won't let management remove
it.
Instead, they Frankenstein the project and it becomes a true
maintenance
and
management nightmare.

So...my suggestion would be to give this project as much thought and
planning as you would any other long term project because chances are
that
it could be around way longer than you think.

IT manager wants to put something in the portal for users to get green
screen apps. They currently have iSeries Access latest version on V5R4
system.
Merged with another company with an existing MS based portal. Looking
for something as simple as making it avail in the portal and let users
do
what they can do today with iSeries Access for Windows.
No desire to make a big project out of this. Old apps on their way out
the
door.
1. Can iSeries Access for Web do the job for fairly intensive green
screen
apps. Some are s36 pgms...
2. Mostly network printers, but a few printers cabled to back of pc.
3. Future goal of single sign on.
4. Hundreds of users. Decent 525 single processor with good memory.
5. Not running websphere or any other app server - hoping to use new
lite
app server
