Version_240

Milestones in RPGwx 2.40

After version 2.38, extensive improvements in the area of speeding up repetitive browser displays were added. The display of windows and filter fields was partially corrected. Due to the stateless programming typical for browser applications, a program is called briefly and then ends again. On the next call, the program reads the previously generated image descriptions and data from a cache and no longer sends back the entire browser page, but only the changed data.

 

The applications created by developers for WOPiXX continue to function without any changes. It cannot be ruled out that special functions may cause display deviations or errors. In the event of errors, please document these using a screen shot and description. The hotline will check the case and arrange for a correction.

 

The development work for shorter response times in the browser is currently continuing and will be incorporated in the WOPiXX 3.00 version.

 Comparison RPGwx - GreenScreen

Programmers obtain enhanced functionality in RPG and COBOL with the RPG Web Extensions / WOPiXX function library. Sources can be edited with RDi or PDM and then compiled with option 14 as before. The result are normal IBM objects that run on any IBM i system where the WOPiXX function library is available. Batch programs are not affected by WOPiXX because they do not require interaction with the user.

The standard IBM delivered Apache web server is used to control the connection to the browser session of the user.
