IBM® WebSphere®Host Access Transformation Services (HATS) developers can use portlets to provide graphical user interfaces for character-based 3270 and 5250 host applications. They can specify defaults for required connection parameters; however, sometimes their users need to modify the connection parameters at run time. This article shows HATS developers how to use the advanced URL generation API capabilities in WebSphere Portal Version 6 to enable their users to override connection parameters in a HATS portlet application. To get the most out of this article, you should have basic HATS skills and be familiar with portal technology and portlet development.
