Hello Vaibhav,
not sure what you need to accomplish if below information is not sufficient please elaborate a bit and describe your requirements.
The Web-to-Host product comes with two technologies.
a. ActiveX Controls
b. Java Applets

You can a reference the ActiveX Control (for example the Mainframe Display Control) in Visual Studio .NET

Start Visual Studio .NET and create either a new Visual Basic .NET Windows application or a Visual C# Windows application. The remaining steps apply to either language.
Select Tools, Customize Toolbox... from the menu, or right-click inside the Toolbox window and select Customize Toolbox... from the context menu. There are two kinds of controls that can be referenced: COM Components and .NET Framework Components. The default COM Components tab shows a list of all the registered ActiveX controls on the computer.

Please note:
With the the withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer 11 and ActiveX, together with the restriction of Java applets by modern browsers,we added a web launcher feature in Web-to-Host 6.9.2
The Host Access Web Launcher provides alternate means of running host sessions. As well as Internet Explorer 11, the Host Access Web Launcher provides the new ability of running the
same host sessions using Chrome, Edge, or Firefox. When you start a Web-to-Host session from a supported browser, the Web Launcher starts and opens the the Web-to-Host session itself.

That's correct for the Web-to-Host product version 6.9.2.
Web-to-Host detects the Browser , if you use Chrome, Edge, or Firefox it will  use the launcher to run the session.  With IE11 Web-to-Host will start in the browser context because IE11 still supports Java Applets and ActiveX controls.

Reflection ZFE  is a different product.
With ZFE we deliver a Java-free solution. It's a HTML5-based emulation with a true zero-footprint client.
You can find more details under here.

Hi Vaibhav,
we support ibm mainframe (3270) connectivity as well AS/400 (5250) connectivity.
You can use the provides components in your Application.
.net developers use the Rumba DeveloperEdition for VisualStudio.
RDE .NET is an Addin that appears in the Microsoft Visual Studio Toolbox as Mainframe, AS/400, UNIX and HP displays. RDE .NET components are objects that are available for you to use in .NET code to add mainframe and AS/400 printing, HLLAPI, macros and FTX functionality to your Visual Studio projects.

This is the wrong forum to address Reflection ZFE issues.
Please re-post your question into the Reflection ZFE forum.

Review your container.log file under  MSS\server\logs and check if the mss service is running correctly.
The Host Access Management and Security Server (MSS) provides the Administrative Console, a web-based centralized location where you can add, edit, and delete terminal sessions.

Hi @andree thanks for your valuable response .
We still not able to make decision about with which product to choose either we go with OnWeb Web-To-Host or else with Reflection ZFE .
we have primarily 3 requirements ,
1 > Everything should run under the browser . No Desktop or Windows form intervention should be there
2 > we want to send parameter to this Web Page/ Web Form from either JavaScript or else from C#
3> no installation or script running at client/user side.

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

how it possible by these products?

I send you a DM to take the discussion offline the forum.

No Desktop Solution eliminates RUMBA.
With Web-to-Host you could use the provided Java Applets, but  to mitigate the Oracle Java changes i would go with Reflection ZFE.
Reflection ZFE provides everything you mentioned so far. We also provide an easy way to embed the Web Client into your own page and pass & retrieve parameters.
