We are finally in the process of updating from V5R2 (most likely to
6.1). Do any of you have experience migrating from JetForm to
something else?

Our needs are probably not very typical: We only use JetForm because
it gave us the ability to (1) position output fields very precisely,
(2) automatically wrap and center text in large fields, (3) print
semitransparent, large-font text overlays, and (4) easily provide
fine-grained offset for the whole template (the elements within the
template keep their positions relative to each other).

More background: We currently have a green-screen app for printing
corporate stock certificates. The certificates have preprinted
material on them from our printing presses, and we have to laser-print
the varying information (like certificate number, company name, state
of incorporation, legal clauses, etc.) into specific places. The
preprinted material can "drift" slightly from batch to batch, which is
where the fine offset comes in handy.

So, recommendations? Suggestions?

I've currently contacted ACOM, for their EZeDocs/400 product; and am
waiting to hear back from DocPath.
