Current users will want to update soon to experience the latest and greatest features as listed in the release notes:


WOW 7.0.02 is the newest member of PlanetJ's award winning web-based rapid application development (RAD) family of products. WOW developers use a "point and click" approach to identify their database files and WOW instantly generates the application including features such as dynamic prompting, summary to detail drill downs, and single click export to Microsoft Excel. WOW's hot deployment technology makes applications available to users via a simple URL.


Long time IBM tools executive John Quarantello wrote, "PlanetJ's webinar on WOW was one of the best presentations and demos I've seen from an iSeries Tools partner". WOW is IBM Server Proven and executes on top of Apache Tomcat or IBM WebSphere. With the ability to create applications in as little as 5 minutes, hundreds of WOW powered applications have already been developed and deployed.


Along with video tutorials and comprehensive documentation provided by PlanetJ, users will be able to modernize and create new IBM i web applications that leverage their existing databases and RPG programming skills. WOW developers can also build applications that access information stored in MySQL, Microsoft Sequel Server, Oracle or any other JDBC compliant databases.


"It is our goal to help all IBM i businesses modernize and develop leading edge applications that utilize their existing investments in the IBM i - without breaking the budget. With these latest enhancements, WOW users will be amazed at how easy that is."

~Paul Holm, WOW Product Architect, PlanetJ Corporation.
