Green screens are the key reason why many people perceive the IBM i as outdated. It's not a question of whether you should provide most of your IBM i applications with a web GUI, but how you should do it.
In this webinar, Marcel Sarrasin, BCD’s product marketing manager, presents two complementary approaches designed to meet your short and long term modernization needs. You’ll learn:

  • The pros and cons of web enabling RPG applications vs. rewriting them with PHP
  • How to deliver web applications that utilize your existing RPG skills and code
  • How to give all your green screen applications a web GUI with minimal effort
  • How to develop fully-functioning PHP web applications in minutes

In the last part of this presentation, Alan Seiden, PHP Community Leader, shows you how to leverage existing RPG and COBOL code using the new open source PHP toolkit for IBM i. He also explains the requirements to run PHP on the IBM i.
