Web Services for Screen Based Applications - Inventu Viewer+ and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

Explore your options...

If you are looking to create new web service transactions or wrap your screen-based transactions with Web Services, Inventu Viewer+ in concert with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET is your answer. The Flynet API provides a native, managed .NET library that enables rapid, reliable web service construction and delivery in a server architecture to up to hundreds of concurrent terminal emulation sessions.

Visual Studio .NET then provides the elegant definition and implementation of Web Services using simple setup Wizards and straight-forward definitions around your c# object methods and properties.

Web Service definition and implementation has been made so simple with Visual Studio .NET, it then becomes a matter of how to interface your Web Service c# code with the backend screen transactions (such as TN3270, TN5250 and VT100 sessions).

While .NET provides the Web Service development productivity, the Inventu Viewer+ family provides a set of tools designed specifically for the rapid documentation and construction of straight-forward XML definitions for your screen-based transactions. With a mix of visual definition tools and code generators, your XML definitions are easily managed and can produce c# class definitions for mapping screen data to your Web Service applications.
