Don't settle for boring static HTML – build modern, dynamic web pages for IBM i with Valence By now you’ve certainly heard more than enough rumblings about needing to “modernize” your green screen programs to work in a more GUI-like fashion. If you’re like us, this talk may have even reached the point of becoming down-right annoying to you.
Well, you may be comforted to know you’ve got company in the web development world! That same sort of nagging “modernization” talk you’ve been hearing about for years regarding your green screen programs is circulating right now among businesses that already have browser-based interfaces but are “still” using plain old static HTML pages. Many of these businesses have made sizable investments in this display model and are now faced with the prospect of having out-dated interfaces that don’t measure up to the competition. Sound familiar?
Simply put, if you’re going to make the leap from green screen into the world of browser-based interfaces, why not leap all the way into the forefront of the technology (aka, “Web 2.0”), versus learning something that’s already being regarded as “yesterday’s technology” among web developers? We’re here to tell you that, contrary to what you might think, it’s no harder to jump from green screen (5250) into Web 2.0 as opposed to Web 1.0. In fact, we’d go so far as to say it’s actually easier to create Web 2.0 interfaces, and we’ve produced training videos available from this web site geared specifically to the RPG community to prove it!
So if you haven’t already spent resources learning how to migrate your 5250 apps into an HTML environment, consider yourself lucky—you can now leap past that mere “stepping stone” technology and into the latest and greatest! The adage, “Good things come to those who wait” may have actually panned out for you. Modernize Your Proven IBM i, iSeries, AS/400 RPG Applications — Don’t Rip & Replace Them! »
