Are you using tn5250j or something else you have developed?

It is something we developed, starting around the turn of the 21st century, as part of our (long-since mostly abandoned for lack of demand) "ThinView" multi-function product. We developed a standalone version (which is what we normally use for remote access to customers; we've never come up with a good license-control system that would allow us to release it as a product), and we also integrated it with our Wintouch CRM product.

I wrote the UI myself, based on a composite of real InfoWindow II look-and-feel, with the look-and-feel of a couple of the more aesthetically pleasing emulation products out there (e.g., WRQ Reflection), while avoiding the look and feel of WSF or (especially) RUMBA.

Over the years, I've selectively implemented TN5250e features. And I added data stream capture functionality in order to help me remedy problems when some application sent an unimplemented command or order (it's been quite a few years since I've had to deal with that situation).

I've never actually used TN5250j myself. And as to IBM-supplied emulators, about the only even remotely current one I've used, other than through a GoToMeeting session, has been the one supplied in LAN Console for our newest box. (Not quite as ugly as RUMBA, but close).

The thought occurred to me that one avenue of investigation (after I've had a chance to try TN5250j myself) is for the customer with the crashing problem to try TN5250j on a few machines, and see if it is subject to the same crashing as our emulator.
