Installing Z and I Emulator for Windows (ZIEWin)
Introduction: Z and I Emulator for Windows provides 3270, 5250, and VT emulation, connecting to z/OS®, z/VM®, eServer™ i5, iSeries®, System i5®, zSeries, and ASCII systems. Z and I Emulator for Windows uses Microsoft Windows Installer technology for all installation procedures. When the Z and I Emulator for Windows installation image is first run, it examines the target system and, if necessary, automatically installs the proper version of the Windows Installer service. Setup.exe is the bootstrap loader that calls the Windows Installer service (msiexec.exe) and launches the installation dialogs. The following should be taken into account when installing Z and I Emulator for Windows: In some cases, installation of Windows Installer triggers a reboot of the system. If you are required to reboot, upon subsequent startup you are taken immediately back to Windows Installer to continue installation of Z and I Emulator for Windows. After Windows Installer has been successfully installed, if the installation of Z and I Emulator for Windows fails or is cancelled by the user, Windows Installer rolls back all partially installed Z and I Emulator for Windows files and returns the system to its original state. You must be a member of the Administrator's group to perform these installations. Before you begin installation, make sure all other applications are stopped. If you are reinstalling Z and I Emulator for Windows or are upgrading Z and I Emulator for Windows, make sure that Z and I Emulator for Windows is not running before you start setup.

Configuring session on Z and I Emulator for Windows (ZIEWin)
Z and I Emulator for Windows saves emulator configuration information to a workstation profile (.WS). Depending on your Z and I Emulator for Windows configuration, you might have a workstation profile only or both workstation profile and a configuration file. The workstation profile can be used later by other Z and I Emulator for Windows sessions, or to restart this session. Configuring Session To create a new session, follow the steps given below: From the Start menu, click Programs -> HCL Z and I Emulator for Windows -> Start or Configure Sessions. In the Session Manager dialog box , click New Session. The Customize Communication window appears. Select the type of host from the Type of Host drop-down list box. Select the interface you will use from the Interface drop-down list box. Select the attachment type you want to use from the Attachment drop-down list box. Click Session Parameters to modify the session type (display or printer), host code page, and display/graphics options. The Session Parameters - 3270, 5250, or ASCII - Host window appears (depending on the host you selected in step 3). Click OK. Click Link Parameters. Enter the appropriate information for each page and click Next to continue and click Finish when you are done. Click the Host Definition tab to configure the Connection Options. Select Auto-reconnect to reestablish an interrupted connection. The Connection Timeout value tells Z and I Emulator for Windows how long it should wait to connect to the host. The Try connecting to last configured host infinitely option is enabled by default. Clear this box if you do not want Z and I Emulator for Windows to automatically and indefinitely wait for acknowledgement for a connect request from the last correctly configured server/host. After configuring the session options, click OK in the Telnet tab panel. Click OK on the Customize Communication window. The session is displayed automatically.

Creating simple ZIETrans project
Introduction: With HCL Z and I Emulator for Transformation (ZIETrans), we can create Web applications that provide an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) for your 3270 applications running on IBM® z Systems platforms and our 5250 applications running on IBM i operating system platforms. ZIETrans applications can be given a modern appearance. ZIETrans Web applications can be developed with an interface that matches the company's Web or portal pages, and users can access them through their Web browsers. ZIETrans Web applications can also be developed to provide access to the host applications from mobile devices such as cellular phones, data collection terminals, and personal digital assistants (PDAs). All of the steps in developing a ZIETrans application are performed using the Eclipse-based IBM® Rational® Software Delivery Platform (Rational SDP). The Rational SDP provides the user interface and integrated development environment (IDE) from which you launch wizards to create resources, view lists of resources, and use editors to modify resources. When you start Rational SDP, you see a single window in which one or more perspectives are displayed. A perspective is a collection of views and editors that allow you to create, edit, view, and run resources which belong to a specific type of project--in this case a ZIETrans project. More than one perspective can be opened at a time, although you can view and work with only one at a time. At the far right of the Rational SDP window, is a shortcut bar that allows you to open new perspectives and move between perspectives that are already open. The name of the active perspective appears in the title of the window, and the toolbar contains icons associated with the active perspective. Starting ZIETrans Toolkit and perspective The ZIETrans Toolkit can be started in two ways. Start Rational SDP from the...
