TN 5250 applet - pb using hosted java applet

Hi all,

 

I would like to configure an access to a terminal 5250.

At the first time, I tried to create a new telnet resource, but some functions don't seem to be taken into account (and "enter" command doesn't work)

 

I tried to use WSAM, it works fine but I don't want to use this solution (I need an agentless solution. I can't install anything on client side)

 

I read some articles and it seems that we can upload an hosted java applet on the IVE. I found one:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/tn5250j/files/

 

but when I upload it on my IVE, I have the following error message:

"The uploaded archive does not contain any Java applet code. Please upload a file that contains code for at least one Java applet"

 

Have you already encountered the same issue?

 

Do you have another solution so as to manage terminal 5250 access through IVE?

 

Thanks for your help

regards

Fred

What did you upload the jar file or the zip file - if the zip file did you remember to select the option to unzip? I just uploaded the jar file with no errors.

Re: TN 5250 applet - pb using hosted java applet

Hi Kevin,

 

I have uploaded the first one (tn5250j-install-0.6.0.jar) and it hasn't worked when I tried to upload it with "uncompress jar/cab file" option checked

 

If I unckeck this option, I can upload it.

 

But after that, I don't how to configure a resource with this applet.
Indeed, I create a new web resource profile using hosted java applet template;

I select my applet

I have to create an associated bookmark where I need to indicate apparently an "HTML code"...but I don't know what to configure here?

And finally, I didn't see where we should indicate the IP address of the destination server...

 

Thanks for your help

Fred

Re: TN 5250 applet - pb using hosted java applet

The key is the html code - let the bookmark "generate" it for you and then edit it. In there you will need to specify the appropriate applet code so that the SA box can call the applet correctly. Most Java applets will let you place variables such as the hostname or IP in the applet code.

 

I don't have time this morning to poke around this applet - but try reading the various files in the zip copy to see if you can determine the parameters needed. Also if you are not that familiar with Java applets I would recommend doing a search in the forums on ProperJavaRDP and then downloading and installing it. I know that I have posted the HTML code that I use for that, as have others. There is also HTML code for MindTerm in this Forum and that would be another one to look at and learn from.

 

Hope that helps!
