"the docs are a bit thin" (!) You are being very gracious......The login screen looks very different but they still login. They don't know that it is a "green screen" app and to prevent them from becoming suspicious we changed many things around. There is support for SSO but I haven't looked into it yet so for right now, its the old "tried and true" login screen.
I've been barely scratching the surface. The toolkit is VERY deep but also poorly documented. I'd really love to roll up my sleeves and dive in but I haven't found the time or a good resource at IBM to keep things moving. HATS is a wonderful transitional tool. Start with basic transforms and then slowly replace the 5250 stuff with .JSP based programs. Even if you took 2 or 3 years to change it all from HATS transformations to "native" .JSP's your users would get a immediate change to look and feel. It isn't a bad option for some shops and IBM is putting more resources (it seems) into the product. Now, if they could just get the documentation squared away and have some live, classroom based training available, I be very satisfied.

Good points. Do you actually throw up the signon screen, or have you come up with a better way to get the user's credentials? I see hints of a better way than the signon screen, but unfortunately, the docs are a bit thin. Thanks! Mike E.

Beyond that, since under the covers (so far) it's all 5250 programming, we haven't changed much of our existing practices. Pete Helgren Mike Eovino wrote:All, My shop is just starting to use HATS. Any suggestions on best practices? For example, should you force the user to log in, or should you record a login macro and log all users in with the same profile?-- This is the Web Enabling the AS400 / iSeries (WEB400) mailing list To post a message email: WEB400@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/web400 or email: WEB400-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/web400.
