Abstract

Many applications in CICS* using the 3270 workstation are suitable for running on the World Wide Web (WWW). This has required special programming.

This text was extracted from an ASCII text file.
This is the abbreviated version, containing approximately 100% of the total text.

Running Applications in CICS on the World Wide Web (WWW)

      Many applications in CICS* using the 3270 workstation are
suitable for running on the World Wide Web (WWW).  This has required
special programming.

      The arrangement shown in the Figure dynamically converts 3270
code to the language HTML and vice versa, at the same time simulating
the use of program function keys on the World Wide Web and
maintaining
user state across invocations.  Access is thus provided to existing
3270 applications from any WEB browser.
