Create database-interfaced Web applications for IBM i in five minutes—for free!
WOW CE 7.0 is a free rapid application development (RAD) tool for IBM i that can build robust Web applications or serve as a query and reporting tool similar to Query/400 or DB2 Web Query. It features dynamic runtime selection, drill-downs, and one-click MS Excel downloads that can be created by simply selecting a target database file. WOW applications are Web-based and can easily integrate with RPG for data access where desired. WOW CE requires Apache Tomcat or IBM WebSphere and can run on any Java-enabled system, including IBM i, Linux, or Windows.
