James,

My information is VERY reliable.. but, unfortunately, my recollection isn't.
But IIRC one (of the massive) offerings of Jacada DOES do automation of the
conversion, and does NOT use interactive.

HOWEVER, the conversion is 95%...

...which sounds pretty good, unless you used the OCR software back when it
was 95% accurate.  Even at 98%, OCR is a PITW (wazoo)...

So the statement I recall the most is that all the apps have to be
re-tested...  That's great, because if you have the mega-bucks to invest in
Jacada (not precise cost, BTW, but close), then you probably have the
resources to test all your user apps.  I've never worked in those kinds of
shops, but a few exist, and that's Jacada's market.

| When you say that the Jacada server translates 5250 screens to

| If it's the later, how much is automated and how much is manual effort?
