Configuring Application Server in ZIETrans
Introduction: With ZIETrans, you can create Web applications that provide an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) for your 3270 applications running on System z® platforms and your 5250 applications running on IBM i operating system platforms. You can also create service-oriented architecture (SOA) assets using Web services that provide standard programming interfaces to business logic and transactions contained within host applications. Data from video terminal (VT) emulation screens can also be accessed. ZIETrans applications can be given a modern appearance. ZIETrans Web applications can be developed with an interface that matches your company's Web, and your users can access them through their Web browsers. ZIETrans Web applications can also be developed to provide access from mobile devices such as cellular phones, data collection terminals, and personal digital assistants (PDAs). The following figure shows the stages of development, deployment, and runtime for a ZIETrans Web application. The developer uses the ZIETrans Toolkit to develop and test a ZIETrans Web application. When ready, the developer deploys the ZIETrans application by exporting it as a Java™ EE application and installing and running it on a WebSphere Application Server system. Using a Web browser, the user accesses the ZIETrans application. The ZIETrans runtime connects to the target host system through a Telnet server. As the user interacts with the host through the ZIETrans application, the ZIETrans runtime transforms host screens to a GUI. You can configure application server for ZIETrans by following steps below: Method 1: Open the ZIETrans toolkit click on menu bar, click Window -> Show View. Server tab will open below. To add a server Right click -> New-> Server. In the New Server Runtime Environment dialog, expand the IBM folder. Select WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile in the New Server Runtime Environment dialog box and provide path of the server in your directory. Select WebSphere Application Server...
