By separating the screen-access logic (also known as "screenscraping") from the ASP page, Screensurfer prevents the need for each developer to become familiar with not only the complications of Screen access, but also the (even greater) complications of the host application itself. With Screensurfer, usually one or two developers can provide callable "remote procedure calls" that act just like an Active Data Objects object.
The SSurfer.ASPRequest object is an ASP component with methods and properties similar to those found in ActiveX Data Objects (ADO). The Screensurfer developer works in Screensurfer's "SurferScript" which is a screen-surfing optimized scripting language which runs on the Screensurfer server. Easily defined recordsets are set in the SurferScript directly from active host screen data and returned to the ASP COM object for use by in the ASP page.
Default behavior provides HTML-based default passthrough right in the middle of the ASP page. At any time, if a screen is recognized in the SurferScript, coded recordsets contain named fields which can be incorporated in the ASP page using native ASP coding. This exploits the best of both products, as Screensurfer's select screen enhancement technology is the fastest and most direct method for delivering 3270 and 5250 screen applications to standard web browsers while enabling full enhancements where needed.
Inventu provides our Customers with software and services to implement new applications that support business initiatives. Inventu concentrates on using, replacing and renewing existing (legacy) applications using our own product, Screensurfer and our Partner's product, Flynet Viewer.
With an HTML-based tag language (Surferscript) which is very similar to Coldfusion CFML, Screensurfer provides very high productivity when converting existing 3270, 5250 and VT100 screens into HTML pages.
Screensurfer's IDE, the Express Editor and Debugger, provides an integrated editing and step-trace debugger for a solid editing and development environment that any developer can appreciate.
