I am assuming it is an interactive hit, because they said, all the "green
screens" are still there.

this was about a year ago, so let me try to pull from memory the diagram
they had....

They had the AS/400 and the user PCs.

the user PCs used the java program loaded in Internet Explorer and it made
requests to the Jacada server.

The jacada server communicated with the AS/400 via telnet ... and I THINK
they said with a 5250 data stream.

I think this is what it does, because when the list was describing the
"interactive tax" to me, something in the back of my head made me think of
this application and say "wow ... sort of crappy idea" [in regards to the
jacada wrap].

That is why I think it seems to be more of a patchwork than a clean
