Are you getting the most out of your green-screen emulation, or are you still using the installation defaults?
For 5250 emulation, aka "green-screen" access, many shops use the product formerly known as Client Access, known as iSeries Access in the version I'm using now, and currently marketed as System i Access in the latest round of name changes. Strictly speaking, green-screen emulation is only a part of the iSeries Access product; what most of us use is called "Personal Communications iSeries Access for Windows."
In a major announcement that follows years of developers' taunting requests to deploy IBM middleware on Amazon's EC2 cloud infrastructure, the companies finally get it done.
By Chris Smith
In a move intended to make it easier for developers and ISVs to develop SaaS solutions, IBM announced this week that it has agreed to let Amazon Web Services host several major IBM middleware packages in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, EC2.
Developers initially will have access to development instances of IBM DB2, Informix Dynamic Server, WebSphere Portal Server, Lotus Web Content Management, and WebSphere sMash. Also available will be Novell's SUSE Linux operating system. The best part is it's free!
