Pinned topic using a webbrowser for mainframe applications

‏2009-04-24T13:49:54Z |
Hi everyone,
I'm investigating the possibilities of how to access mainframe data/applications using a standard webbrowser.
Does anybody know how to set something like this up?

    You might like to take a look at IBM Rational Host Access Transformation Services (HATS) - http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rational/products/rhats/

    With HATS, you can extend your 3270 and 5250 host applications to the Web, to a portlet, to a rich client, or to browsers on mobile devices quickly, easily, and with low risk.

    This article explains how to make your existing mainframe applications available on the Web can help extend their value, plus increase efficiency and encourage reuse of assets -

    Another possible way is to use Java to code applications and WebSphere Application Server to host these applications.
    You can find more information on:

    One of my colleagues had these comments:

    This is what immediately springs to mind:

    WebSphere Host On-Demand provides a 3270 emulator via a web browser http://www-01.ibm.com/software/webservers/hostondemand/

    TSO/ISPF Client Gateway is available in z/OS 1.10 can be configured to invoke TSO and ISPF commands from a browser

    ISPF Workstation Agent allows client/server access to ISPF, although not through a browser.
