Trends in UI and UX designs emphasize the need to modernize the mainframe green screens.
Improved ergonomics, web compatibility and user journey mean better adoption and workflow efficiency.
Smart Publishing offers a simple interface design revamping
from simple HTML automatic screen conversion to elaborate and customized display for increased added-value and enhanced user experience.
Other technologies like Angular can be implemented upon request. The REST API SMPaaS to create the relevant Web Services is available in the Mainframe Integrator Suite.
Configurable modules (web.xml, Smart configuration files, adaptation of JSPs,…) are also delivered with the Mainframe Integrator Suite.
Still relying on the mainframe kinematics, green screens are revamped from the same JSP template (1 for n mode) or from a specific JSP template for each screen (1 to 1 mode).
🔹Display a screen in automatic mode (same than mainframe screen)
🔹Apply a set of rules in automatic mode to improve user interface
🔹Perform a specific display for a particular screen
🔹Automate/hide part of the navigation from the user using an AccessObject
You may then enrich the application by setting additional parameters that will be triggered
upon receipt of pre-defined screens (anchors) e.g.:
🔹Forward of a defined revamping JSP,
🔹Forward on a defined Servlet,
🔹Execution of an AccessObject
Example of AccessObject designed with Enterprise Studio and used in a Smart Publishing application to automate / hide part of the Mainframe navigation.
