support, and improved national language capabilities.
In this way, they can run not only a full complement of 3270 functions, including graphics, but also client/host applications that rely on industry standard 3270 APIs like EHLLAPI
Application interfaces include EHLLAPI
, LUO and a 3270 data stream level API to create custom applications, as well as Windows DDE for inter-program communications.
interface to all hosts, including RUMBA for UNIX
Reflection also supports EHLLAPI
to be compatible with legacy applications written to that API.
Supported network protocols include APPC-CICS, CPI-C, EHLLAPI
