ASNA announces visual RPG 3.5
ASNA announces ASNA Visual RPG 3.5 (AVR 3.5), the latest release of its Web and Windows development environment. This new release includes enhancements to AVR 3.5's integrated development environment (IDE), user interface control enhancements, substantially enhanced RPG syntax capabilities, and increased database capabilities (a detailed list of enhancements is included in this document).
Coinciding with the release of AVR 3.5 is also the release of Acceler8DB 5.0 (ADB 5.0). Acceler8DB provides a database on local PCs and Windows NT/2000 Servers that is functionally equivalent to DB2/400 and allows AVR applications to connect, with record-level access, to iSeries/400s. ADB 5.0's major improvements include substantially improved scalability (especially important for Web applications) and native support for SQL Server. AVR 3.5 and ADB 5.0 will ship later this summer.
BinaryTree.com releases CMT for iNotes
BinaryTree.com, headquartered in Red Wing, Minn., has developed an innovative product to align with the new iNotes initiative, CMT for iNotes. CMT for iNotes allows organizations to migrate their users' data without any end-user interaction required. This server-to-server migration tool seamlessly migrates the data from the Exchange servers to a single iSeries running Domino. With iSeries' success in scalability, reliability and security, iNotes enables organizations to consolidate their servers, effectively managing time and controlling hardware costs. Because the CMT for iNotes migration process does not access the end users' systems, there is no need to worry about all of the different configurations that may exist in any company.
LegacyJ DDS plug-in liberates IBM iSeries DDS screens for COBOL and Java
LegacyJ Corp., San Jose, Calif., announced the availability of the LegacyJ DDS Plug-in. LegacyJ DDS Plug-in permits the use and display of iSeries DDS screens on any platform supporting Java. The LegacyJ DDS plug-in is the natural extension for COBOL and Java and displays screens defined using IBM's OS/400 Data Description Specification (DDS). The DDS screen definitions, familiar to the OS/400 community, remain valuable and can continue to be used to define user interface interactions. The screens can be leveraged with the use of the DDS Plug-in, and unlike screen scraping, DDS screen definition records are controlled and displayed on the platform where they are deployed. PERCobol in conjunction with DDS Plug-in maintains the same behavior as it did when solely resident on the OS/400 while enabling the COBOL application to access data remotely on the iSeries server.
