LANSA Adds jQuery to Visual LANSA
June 28, 2011 Alex Woodie
jQuery should make a wonderful addition to Visual LANSA, the rapid application development platform that has its roots in LANSA’s 4GL, called RDML. While development of user interfaces has always had a role in LANSA, the LANSA platform has traditionally focused more on accelerating the development of business logic and reusing application components as much as possible.
Last but not least, with Visual LANSA 12 SP1, LANSA now supports the capability to install or upgrade LANSA for iSeries (which creates green-screen IBM i apps), into an iASP (Independent Auxiliary Storage Pool).
This was the second recent Visual LANSA announcement out of the company, which has U.S. headquarters near Chicago. About a month ago, LANSA unveiled a major upgrade to the Visual LANSA Framework that gives users the capability to deploy Visual LANSA interfaces on smartphones.
