Apologies in advance if this isn't the correct group...

We're in the process of converting a mainframe application to a Web-enabled
one. EAServer seems the way to go, but I'm struggling a little.

I've got EAServer 3.0.1 (3.5 is on order) and I'm trying to visualize how
this all fits together...

If we assume we want a distributed application, at what point do we lean
towards the PowerJ HTML Datawindow vs. Servlets? If we can use Dynascript
to generate HTML, (for fairly simple pages), is there a reason to go to
Servlets? Or is EJB a better way to go?

I believe 3.5 will enhance XML / DHTML, wouldn't I want to gear towards that
(and doesn't that preclude use of the DataWindow)?

Obviously I'm still at the very beginning of this, but thanks in advance for
any help... (and your patience...)

Dan

There are many different way to develop web applications. You are correct,
you will develop your back end in Jaguar CTS. Your components will be PB,
Java or C/C++.

Now you can develop your web front-end any way that works for your company,
i.e., if you use IIS you might want to use ActiveX client to talk to Jaguar
or PowerDynamo client to talk to PowerDynamo. If you use IBM AIX with NS you
may choose to use JRun Servlets with JSP to call Jaguar.

There is no one solution. Sybase's tools are very open and allow you do
access the components from many different front-end.

Thanks for your quick response.

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee the client (nor the web server).

Are you aware of any document on sdn that might help us 'target' (as you did
in your reply)?

Dan

PS. It helped.

I'm not sure what you are looking for? A list of clients that work on
target.
