ASNA Wingstm is the fastest, easiest way to create a modern user interface for RPG programs. Wings transforms green-screen display files to modern browser pages. Because Wings uses IBM’s Rational Open Access RPG Edition, program logic and file IO remain on the System i. No big upfront design or analysis is required and Wings can be learned very quickly. Unlike screen scrapers, all of the display file data is presented to Wings, so there are many ways to further customize the presentation layer. NOW SHIPPING!
