This is great! Thank you for all of the ideas and viewpoints, you have
identified a lot of things that we need to think about. Lots of reading to
do over the holidays!

I wish everyone a wonderful holiday, upcoming or just past, and look forward
to "talking" again next year.

Thanks,
Ken

Definitely an issue with CASE tools.  If I could figure out how to get
around this particular problem, I would.  Unforunately, IBM won't expose
hooks to the display file, so we're stuck.  It's either work at the 5250
data stream level (and I quote, "I'll slit my wrists first!"), or modify the
source.

Agreed.  Even though the HTML knowledge required to use PSC400 is pretty
low, it's not zero (well, the green screen emulation version is zero, but
the "prettier" web application version requires a little).  Personally, I
think PSC400 is easier to use than WebFacing - you run two commands and then
edit the generated HTML as needed - but then again I'm pretty biased <grin>.

Anyway, good luck in your endeavors!  Keep us posted.

Joe
