Emulation Solution for Corporate Networks
is installed on a corporate server enabling centralized management and
maintenance. Java applets are downloaded to the workstation's browser
the first time BOSaNOVA Web is accessed and automatically updated each
time the user connects to the host.
BOSaNOVA Web particularly benefits as
AS/400 organization that:
- has a TCP/IP based
- uses the AS/400 server for
e-Commerce application, and/or
- has remote users or networks
connected to the AS/400 via Internet or an extranet
Benefits for System Administrators
|BOSaNOVA Web enables the system
administrator to monitor and control sessions between client and host.
This provides a secure system by allowing the system administrator to
decide who may and may not have access to a particular session. In
addition, BOSaNOVA Web allows administrators to define groups for users
who have the same access and session needs. Grouping is an efficient
tool for managing multiple users because it reduces the need to create
individual sessions for each user.
includes built-in support for the SSL protocol that allows
bi-directional secure connections between the server and the client. The
SSL protocol establishes encrypted communication links based on
certificates containing the company's identification information. The
client digital certificates are supported as well. The BOSaNOVA Web
Certificate Manager facilitates management of multiple server
certificates, both self-signed and signed by a third party Certificate
Authority, VeriSign or Thawte. In addition, BOSaNOVA Web's security system
includes a server-based user ID and password.
The Session Monitor can display a report describing the session
currently supported by active server
GUI Emulation and Printing Solution for TCP/IP Networks
|BOSaNOVA Web provides TN5250e
emulation environment with full customizable 5250 key support, macros
and toolbars for fast command operations. Legacy screens are
automatically translated, during run time, into full color, Windows-like
screens BOSaNOVA Web enables one-time configuration for all application
screens and operates without interfering with host applications. Reports
can be printed directly from the AS/400 via a printing application that
is downloaded and installed workstations as a plug-in where the user
initiates first printer session, and is automatically updated during
future sessions. The one-time configuration process eliminates the need
for definitions and other print queue management tasks, as is necessary
for LPD printing. The BOSaNOVA Web SCS printing facility features:
for any Windows driver
drivers for increased printing performance and fine-tuning of
AS/400 SQL Data Transfer
provides the JDTF function for transferring data in either
direction between a PC and an AS/400.
This handy function facilitates the building of profiles for data
transfer and allows users to browse AS/400 files and members, and
display the DDS (Data Description Specification) information. JDTF also
includes a powerful SQL editor that allows the user to easily create
complicated SQL queries.
BOSaNOVA Web supports native AS/400 SQL data transfer
Associated Graphic File
|BOSaNOVA Web allows
display of a graphic file found on server whose name matches a string
selected from display session screen. The matching picture is shown in a
new window, positioned on top of display session window.
All graphic file types supported by the
workstation's browser are supported.
The Show Picture function is
especially convenient for catalog and production applications.
This sample employee identification application demonstrates how
BOSaNOVA Webs built-in picture viewer can be used to clarify existing programs. An images directory, containing employee photos with file names matching the employees' social security numbers, has been uploaded to the server and is available to any client machine with access privileges to the display session.

- AS/400 printing emulation plug-in
application deployed to workstations the first time server is
- JDTF - Native AS/400 SQL data transfer
between a PC and an AS/400
||BOSaNOVA Web Server
||The Jadvantage Server consists
of a proxy server used for securing TN5250e sessions and a thin Web
server. It is recommended that the Jadvantage server be run in the batch
mode on the AS/400. The administrator determines system priority and can
schedule Jadvantage to start automatically after IPL. When installed
over Windows, the Jadvantage server can be set to be an NT service,
starting automatically when Windows starts.
||BOSaNOVA Web Client
||Users access the server via a
company URL or IP address. After receiving user authentication, the
TN5250e emulation applet starts running, enabling the user to access
AS/400 data and applications.
