One of the prominent enhancements in this release is an improved RPG-to-Web conversion wizard. The wizard takes existing RPG/DDS programs and converts them to Web applications. The result is a true Web application, not a webfaced green-screen. The new applications can be maintained and enhanced with the RPGsp IDE. "We are able to achieve a 100% conversion success rate on many types of applications,” says Alex Roytman. “Similar tools on the market claim an approximate success rate of only 70%." The RPG-to-Web conversion wizard is completely customizable via templates and cascading style sheet documents. As a starting point, the software comes with over 20 pre-built templates.
Other important enhancements in this release of RPGsp include:
Most RPGsp enhancements are the result of feedback from RPGsp customers and the iSeries community. Profound Logic achieved record RPGsp sales during the first quarter of 2005. As its customer base grows, Profound Logic Software plans to continue listening to its customers and to continually enhance the RPGsp environment.
Profound Logic Software is also proud to announce IBM’s endorsement of RPG Smart Pages (RPGsp). IBM reviewed the RPGsp Development Environment and added it to its iSeries Developers Roadmap. IBM views RPGsp as a practical tool for enhancing RPG development and quickly creating sophisticated Web applications on the iSeries.

About RPG Smart Pages (RPGsp)
RPGsp is the first Rapid Web Development Environment based on native ILE RPG. By integrating RPG business logic in an HTML interface, an RPG developer can produce powerful business applications faster than ever before. RPGsp is analogous to web technologies such as ASP or JSP, apart from the fact that all host logic is written exclusively in RPG, the most natural and efficient language for accessing data on the iSeries. Designed specifically for RPG developers, RPGsp is the perfect tool for creating graphical intranet-based iSeries Applications or for deploying Web Applications.
