Speaker: Mona Baker, Information Builders Inc.

This product is a full function HTTP/HTTPS server for VM that harnesses the power of the mainframe and provides access to legacy data and applications from a standard Web Browser. WEB390 exploits CMS multi-tasking capabilities, integrating communication tasks, control tasks, and CGI engine tasks. This structure enables secure and efficient processing of HTTP and 3270 data flow while providing full operator control of the server. As an added bonus we are hoping to have another MVMUA member company that has written an application for WEB390 to present there ideas.
