OpenLegacy’s iSuite offering is made specifically for IBM System i / AS400 systems. It allows you to extend your system and expose it as REST APIs, web services, a cloud service or even a completely auto-generated single page web application or mobile app.
The OpenLegacy iSuite connectors can unlock your data from any layer:
- Presentation layer
OpenLegacy’s 5250 connector can automatically scan and parse green screens to gather data and metadata with very little effort on your part. The connectors can identify on it’s own the screens fields, titles, data types, actions, tables, headlines, constants and even the relationships between the different screens. While everything is detected automatically, you can always change and configure this to fit your needs perfectly.
- Business Logic Layer
OpenLegacy iSuite RPC connectors allow you to access and use COBOL, RPG and other types of programs. This connector parses the program source code to find the exact data structure needed for activation, it takes care of data types conversion and creates a strong type OpenLegacy entity which maps and abstracts calls to that program as APIs.
- Data Layer
OpenLegacy Database connector enables you to expose DB400 or any other JDBC compliant database as services and API. You can use this connector to allow modern clients to access your legacy data or you can even create automatically and out of the box an entire CRUD web or mobile app based on your tables.
