IBM has created several host access products. One of the newest additions to this family of products is the IBM WebFacing Tool. The IBM WebFacing Tool is packaged as part of WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries (Development Studio Client). It converts existing data description specifications (DDS) into Java artifacts that are deployed in an application server, such as, WebSphere Application Server. The advantage of using the IBM WebFacing Tool is that existing IBM eServer iSeries applications require no or few modifications. These applications are accessible from both the Web and iSeries display devices.
This IBM Redbooks publication discusses WebSphere Development
Studio Client for iSeries V5.0 and the IBM WebFacing Tool.
Development Studio Client includes several powerful tools that
target iSeries application developers:
WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced or WebSphere Studio
iSeries-specific features such as the WebFacing Tool
CoOperative Development Environment (CODE)
Integrated iSeries debugger
Note: This book targets university and college students who are studying computer and information technology.
