GUI interface - Any good ones? Published by: Chris Proctor on 07 May 2014 view comments(10)

Good morning, all. I haven't visited the area of a GUI interface for the iSeries in quite a while, but there's talk that our customer reps are wanting a more "Windows feel" instead of green screen. I know the last time I looked at this the screen scrapers were pretty archaic and looked more like a gray "green screen".

I'm curious if there's anything out there now that's any good. I'm interested in anything, software that takes a green screen program and converts the DSPF into something that can possibly be modified for drop-down listboxes, etc., software that will call RPG programs, perhaps even software that allows the development of a GUI interface to an RPG program.

I want to have an idea what's available, so I can do a little research. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
