It's a bit of work with IBM WebFacing (manual process) but certainly possible. I'd like to add just a little bit about screen scrapers. The first generation of scrapers were very simplistic and basically only converted from 5250 to GUI and back. They worked, but had many quirks. The current generation is much more sophisticated than that. You'll find very few vendors who won't wince at the 'screen scraper' moniker. I don't think the industry has come up with a good replacement for 'dynamic 5250 datastream conversion' yet. The point is that when you call, ask them what differentiates their product from a first generation screen scraper. No matter what product you choose, be sure to have the vendor convert a typical subset of your code base and take a good look at it. Have the end-user who normally works with those programs sit down and hammer away at it. In my opinion you really need to understand your motivation for trying to webify in the first place. Determine the ultimate goal (broader audience, Windows integration, etc.) and see which product addresses it the best. When I say 'the best,' I mean to say that whatever is best for YOUR organisation. Because what is great for me may be horrible for you... --buck
