In addition to things like Profound UI and Look Software's offerings, and others, IBM has given us IBM i Access for Web 5250. It's been around for at least 12 years and runs in either a WAS server or, I believe, IWS (Integrated Web Server) instance. You need the same licensing as ACS does - the IBM i Access - 5770XW1, I think.

It is pretty basic, from what I can in documentation and various articles. You can adjust look and feel with CSS files and such. I don't know whether it can have images on the screen, although there is always the HTML keyword in DSPF source - maybe one can send an <img> tag of some sort to get more stuff there - some kind of valid HTML inserted into what is rendered (scraped) already.

Hello Tom,

Not developing using GUI, but creating a GUI interface instead of the 5250 with the modernization capabilities.

What exactly are you thinking about?

GUI is solely a client thing, while communicating with application servers ("Middleware") or directly via SQL to IBM i. Dunno if new offerings vom IBM help developing Client-Server applications more than earlier approaches did.

Or are you talking about those fancy web UI possibilities? Also, in the end it's mostly HTML sent to a browser running on a GUI client.

Or did I understand completely wrong?

:wq! PoC
