Don't need to. You're still thinking in the program 1 -> program 2 -> program 3 mode. If you're in program 3 maybe the app allows you to go to program 2 but you can't get straight to program 1 without going through program 2. This model simply doesn't hold water in the web world. Any attempts to make a web browsers deal with this model results in a, IMHO, klunky web interface. You need to break the app into business logic components. If broken successfully, these can be called in any logical order and the web user can jump from/to any screen. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com -----Original Message----- From: James W.

Do you open the 5250 emulation session in a separate window with no navigation bar? "Walden H.

I agree that in some situations 5250 is best, mainly > for heads-down data entry, but beyond that it's the web browser! _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lemail@example.com Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
