  • Here is the promise of WebClient in a nutshell –the ability to generate a web page from an existing panel without rewriting. In this example, we have a Plex function that has been generated in 5250. With CA Plex, it is easy to generate a client server version running on Windows or Java without code changes. In fact, you are probably already familiar with this capability. WebClient add the ability to generate a web page as just another variant on your model. In this example, all three variants of the Edit Warehouse function share the same action diagram and the same panel editor design. The WebClient version show what is possible with the application of a cascading style sheet to make the screen design even more presentable. So the result is that you can be generating web pages from your CA Plex applications in a matter of minutes. Pretty powerful stuff. CMFirst Company Overview

  • What we are offering is what we feel is a much better way – using CA Plex in conjunction with WebClient and a mobile GUI library called Sencha Touch. Using the approach, which is JavaScript based, you will end up with a first-class mobile UI that operates as true mobile application. It will operate in an webkit-based mobile browser environment – which directly covers iPhone, iPad, and Android, or 94% of the mobile browsing traffic. It also covers some of the other platforms like BlackBerry and Nokia, that are introducing webkit based browsers onto their platforms. For example, BlackBerry 6.0 has been tested successfully with this technology. The framework makes use of the latest browser technology – for example HTML 5 and CSS 3. These technologies are expected by many to supplant older technologies like Flash and Silverlight, and in fact HTML 5 is on an upward trajectory in use at many high volume production sites. With this framework, you can do more that serve up applications – you can make use of local storage, audio/video capability, geographic services, and of course the touch framework so popular on the new devices.

  • So here it is in a nutshell – the webclient generator takes the Plex model as input, applies a set of templates – in this case the new mobile templates – and generates web pages that use the mobile app metaphors. In concept and practice it is fairly simple – we hide the complexity in our product. CMFirst Company Overview
