Accessing modernized 3270 screens is now available with any Internet browser

GT Software, the leader in revolutionizing data, processes and transactions to optimize business information across all platforms, announces the latest release of Ivory VisualConnect.  This new release removes the dependence on Java Applets enabling modernized 3270 applications to be accessed by any Internet browser.

Ivory VisualConnect enables companies to modernize mainframe-based 3270 applications by creating new modern application user interfaces.  Using this solution, programmers can convert complex 3270 application screens into graphically intuitive interfaces that can be accessed via a web browser.  With Ivory VisualConnect, creating modernized 3270 screens is possible without any additional programming.  Modern user interfaces for 3270 applications improves usability and satisfaction, boosts productivity and extends ROI of existing legacy applications.

Based on Google’s announcement in early 2016 that Google Chrome would stop supporting Java Applets, GT Software is replacing the existing Ivory VisualConnect AppViewer with a new HTML viewer.  The new HTML Viewer eliminates the need for Java Applets.

Currently available in Beta for current Ivory VisualConnect customers, this latest release also includes:

  • New HTML Viewer written in HTML5 and Angular to provide superior quality graphics.
  • Faster load times due to quick download of the HTML template.
  • Ability to run multiple Ivory VisualConnect projects in different browser tabs.
  • Easier project deployment with a single WAR file.
