Integrating Windows 7 Features with IBM i: What Works, What Doesn't, What Changed

It appears Microsoft has hit the PC operating system target with Windows 7. It's fast, intuitive, and secure, but what's in it for us IBM i professionals?

Written by Chris Peters

The reasoning for migration to Microsoft's latest version of its operating system is quite compelling, enough so that directors of traditional IBM i installations may decide the effort and expense of conversion is merited. This article examines the major benefits and significant limitations of migrating to Windows 7 in the IBM i environment as well as the requirements for its implementation.

Create "Steady Headers" in Your HTML Tables

Do your users get frustrated when they scroll down through tables and can't see the headers? You can fix that!

giovanni_perottiWritten by Giovanni B. Perotti

Usually, when an HTML table containing many rows does not fit in the page height, a vertical scroll bar is generated on the right side of the page, allowing users to display the lower rows of the table. In scrolling down, however, the table headers are no longer visible, so users may need to scroll back up the page to check column headings. Users would by far prefer to have the column headers kept steady at the top of the screen, while the scroll bar scrolls just the table rows.
