Thought I'd update everyone on the progress over at Zappie (www.zappie.net). The read-only JDB/400 has been available for a while... as you may already know, this package allows access to the AS/400 database using RPG-like methods such as CHAIN and READE. The newest addition is JBUI (Java Blockmode User Interface). This package allows the programmer to create, with just a few lines of code, a display panel that supports: 1. Input/output or output only fields (via a protect method) 2. Error indication (via an error method, which changes the color of the field) 3. Error message list (similar to an error message subfile) 4. Buttons with text 5. Optional function key accelerators for the buttons (such as F1) 6. An EXFMT method which waits for the user to press a button, then returns the button identifier A pre-release version is available at www.zappie.net/java/techniques/jbui/jbui.htm. Take a look. There are a couple of more plans in the works: JDQM (Java Data Queue Messaging) will provide the final link to creating full client/server applications, using Java on the client and RPG or Java on the AS/400. Also, I'm looking at some combined classes from JDB/400 and JBUI which will take most of the work out of creating simple panels for inquiry functions. I hope to combine this with JDQM to make one-step client/server inquiry panels a reality. And all this is FREE. With source. Drop by some time and check it out... ========== Joe "Zappie" Pluta www.zappie.net/java Where the AS/400 talks Java - with an RPG accent! ========== +--- | This is the JAVA/400 Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to JAVA400-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to JAVA400-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to JAVA400-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
