Give your green screen applications new life in web browsers
When modernizing RPG applications, you may opt to web-enable (also known as “screen scraping” or “refacing”) your 5250 applications. This approach gives green screens a modern look without investing heavily in development time and tools. Web-enabling 5250 applications can also act as a stopgap modernization solution until such a time that full modernization away from the 5250 stream is possible.
Profound Logic supports this approach with our Genie product. Genie provides on-the-fly green screen modernization with an intuitive, non-intrusive method for modernizing all of your RPG, CL, Cobol, menu, and system screens.
