The company that we purchase our rating software from is PMSC (now merged
with CSC).  It is all green screen stuff, but apparently their "new" user
interface is GUI and it uses a Jacada server to translate the 5250 screens
to GUI.

It looked neat when they demoed it.

Apparently they are going that route because new business is not keen on the
green screen approach and GUI based solutions are eating into their market.

Even though it looked neat, it seemed more of a patchwork solution as
opposed to a clean implementation.

Only other thing I can add about Jacada is that they [PMSC] said it is Java
based.
