Hello from Mark and Dave.
We hope this will be a blog that is of interest to many people. We work with a lot of customers who have existing applications running on System z in CICS, IMS, or batch that access files, DB2, or DL/I. The focus of this blog will be how you can transform existing z-based applications into a more modern architecture using EGL. This could include using EGL to wrapper existing applications into web services for SOA based systems, to restructuring applications to segment out the business and data logic, front-ending existing services or callable programs with EGL JSF or EGL Rich Ui (Web 2.0 capability currently in AlphaWorks), integration of EGL web technologies with the web services capabilities in Rational Developer for System z, and other appropriate topics.
We welcome your participation in this blog and hope you will share you thoughts, solutions, or other information related to using EGL to modernize System z based systems and environments.
