Connect to mainframe Host from web application
For one of our upcomming projects, we have below requirement and would really appriciate any recomendations w.r.t. toolset we can use.
We currently have an Web Application developed in Siebel; on some action it opens an .Net Windows Application which has several sub-forms that
connect and display mainframe/AS400 system using Rumba 8.0 through ActiveX components.
On various actions of the WebApplication; related details are shown in the mainframe/AS400 system via.Rumba.
We need to replicate the above functionality without having the desktop/windows dependency i.e using Rumbas web version if available.
From our research, we found that there are multiple products who might provide some or the other feature.
Hence can you please let us know which product can suffice most of the above requirements
Some features we think the web appilcation should possess are:
1. Conect to AS-400 system (session)
2. Connect directly to system (without end-user entering connection details)
3. Passing parameters to the AS400
Any assistance will be highly appriciated.
