Creates a
Terminal Java-based terminal applet with a screen-based session. Terminal sessions provide access to host data from within a browser.
Express Terminal Java-based terminal applet similar to a regular, but provides fewer features and requires less processing overhead.
HotGUI Terminal applet just like the regular terminal session, but uses a GUI-style interface, as opposed to the traditional "green screen" interface. Also, commands from the menu can be displayed as command buttons.
Printer Java-based printer applet with a printer-based session. Printer sessions work in conjunction with Terminal sessions to print host files.
File Transfer File transfer applet with a screen-based session.
ActiveX Terminal and Printer Terminal and printer similar to the Java-based terminal and printer above, but optimized for Microsoft Windows environments using ActiveX technology.
Terminal Layouts Multi-session layout configuration that opens one or more session windows on the user's screen. The user can save the session windows in a prearranged position on his or her screen, so that each session opens in the same position. For example, a user may consistently work with three display sessions and one printer session. If the user saves this arrangement of windows as a layout, all windows can be re-opened with a single command.
Note In this release, Layouts can only include the following configuration types: 3270 Terminal, 3270 Printer, 5250 Terminal, 5250 Printer, and VT Terminal.
Host Graphics Option Graphics terminal applet that allows the user to emulate a host graphics terminal and to work with vector graphics applications on the mainframe.
