Easy and Powerful Web-Enabling and Web Services for your 3270 Apps
We believe your mainframe should be able to communicate with everything and vice versa! That's where z/Ware 2.0™ comes in!
The reworked architecture of z/Ware 2.0 combines everything that our customers have come to expect from z/Web-Host and z/XML-Host into one, and expands the features to new heights! All of this, and it's still just as easy! Months of implementation time? Technology that requires weeks of classroom instruction? Hundreds of thousands of dollars of software and new platform costs? Who made this the norm for bringing legacy applications into the 21st century? Apparently not the customers paying the price.
By combining the common components of the two products, customers now have more choices and capabilities directly from one solution. z/Ware 2.0 now extends the capabilities for data integration from pure 3270 to other data sources including CICS COMMAREAs, extending the ease of use of the Company’s software to include customers’ direct CICS applications and data sources in addition to 3270 screen transformation. The new product also features a robust script-processing facility to automate interaction between applications and platforms across the enterprise, and a new document-facility for creating templates to exchange with XML/Web Services- enabled applications like Java or Microsoft’s .Net platform. z/Ware can integrate your data from MS-SQL, Oracle or other databases and even between your .NET and JAVA applications! Believe it or not, your mainframe can even send tweets to Twitter!
z/Ware 2.0 was built for mainframe users. With z/Ware, you get results in hours, not months. z/Ware is the Easiest way to transform the capable, back-end logic of your existing 3270 applications into fully functional web-browser based application or use Web Services to connect with other platforms.

Take a look at how z/Ware was used to combine three 3270 screens, including the one below, into the single web-based application screen at the right!
The z/Ware application doesn't just look better -- it also adds functionality, including one-click macros, widgets for pop-up calendars and calculators, and even a pop-up for looking up information from the Postal Service!
By creating a brand new graphical user interface complete with menu systems, dropdowns, and widgets for performing tasks automatically, z/Ware can provide a better user experience and increase productivity like never before!
Support your Mainframe into the Future--now with Full IPv6 Support
You know that Internet addresses (IPv4 addresses) are rapidly being exhausted, leaving networks everywhere with constraint on expansion and new capabilities. The Internet community has been hard at work to redefine the architecture and now, with IPv6 addresses, this limitation is limited. But your chosen software product have to support this new environment, and z/Ware is fully IPv6 ready and able.
Transform your Applications to the Web -- Now with AJAX Support!
With z/Ware 2.0 you can transform your 3270 screens into rich, web-browser applications that anyone can access and understand without any training. What's more, you can use any Web design tool you like, including ExpressionWeb, FrontPage, DreamWeaver, Hotdog and more, to layout the look and feel of your screens. Using z/Ware 2.0's Advanced HTML Templates, you store the new layout with definitions of the data on the original screen, and z/Ware 2.0 will merge the data dynamically to create the web-browser output. This means you can even use your web-designer to layout the new look of the mainframe applications.
With z/Ware 2.0's AJAX support your Web-based applications can function like a Windows application, with drag-and-drop, right-mouse click behavior, and dynamic updating of data without refreshing. Your users benefit from intuitive, rich applications in a browser. You benefit from reusing your stable, secure and high performing mainframe applications. And since z/Ware 2.0 runs native on zOS-OS/390, z/VSE and VSE/ESA, there's no need to add extra time, cost and support issues by using additional platforms just to get to your mainframe data.
z/Ware 2.0 works with any 3270 application, CICS or non-CICS. Plus, z/Ware 2.0 doesn't use precious CICS resources, or require less reliable components, like CICS Web Support (CWS), to function. And with z/Ware 2.0's Application Automation Feature (AAF), you can easily automate the interaction with your applications to combine multiple screens into one, pass data between screens, even store variables and automatically enter data. This allows you to change the interaction with the user to an easier format, without any changes to the existing application. With z/Web, we can also provide the ability to translate the pages into multiple languages to provide for an even wider customer base!
We chose the easiest and simplest implementation to ensure our software would work in nearly all environments. By not using Java or ActiveX components, z/Ware 2.0 will work with any browser, whether on a PC, Mac or PDA or web-enabled cell-phone.
And z/Ware 2.0 works together with our iCYA product to provide full encryption capabilities for your Internet-enabled mainframe, so your data is secure.
We could continue to show you, but touching is believing. Logon to a Live Demo of z/Ware 2.0 running on a mainframe at our U.K. offices!
