I've been evaluating a web-facing tool from BCD called WebSmart, and I wanted to know if anybody here had any experience with it. It's used to migrate green screen iSeries apps to a web format.
The examples given in their doc have you embedding database fields into your web page, but we would be using work files to transmit data to and from the iSeries using a stored procedure.
We would use stored procedures to load and write a multiple-format work file that would load the web page with defaults. The stored procedure is called again in validation/update mode to perform all edits on the iSeries using RPG, then return a work file with error messages, normally displayed at the top of the page all together, and possibly in the body of the page next to each section in error. If there are no errors, the same stored procedure formats data and updates the database files on the iSeries.
If anybody is using WebSmart, I would appreciate seeing some examples like this, as well as any other advice you may have on the product.
