Release 3.02 - 2002/09/15 - Version 3.02 of WebSmart Released

Ability to generate Java servlets

  1. This is really the flagship feature. It means WebSmart is no longer RPG dependant, and to a certain degree no longer platform dependant. The ease with which to switch to other platforms will be improved in future versions, but because it is generating servlets, these can now be run on other systems and access AS/400 data.
  2. Record handling functions that can take klists now get prompted with a tool tip from which you can select existing klists. This is an 'ease of programming' enhancement. Simply makes it easier to code record access functions as the programmer no longer has to remember or hunt around and find the right klist name, but a tool-tip list of all available ones pops up instantly and they can pick the one they want.
  3. Support for 'escaped' characters in string constants (such as newline and tabs). This feature allows you to put carriage returns and tabs and quotes as 'escaped' characters (preceded by a slash). This makes it easier for the programmer to compose formatted strings, such as the bodies of emails.
  4. The repository interface now remembers which libs were opened or closed. Makes the repository interface less cluttered.
  5. When you open a definition it will automatically check for a backup copy. The backup copy will exist if the last session ended abnormally, or if someone else is actively using the definition In case of a PC crash, some people were not aware that a backup copy of the definition was kept. The product now automatically checks for backup copies and gives you the option of restoring it. This also has the added benefit of alerting a user to the fact that someone else might currently be using the definition.
  6. New function: Checkbox. Used to dynamically control the checked or unchecked setting of a control box more easily than doing it by hand Due to the structure of the HTML for a checkbox, conditionally checking or unchecking it requires some repetitive coding which is now encapsulated into a function call.
  7. New function: Translate. Can be necessary to read in data uploaded from a PC, or to write IFS files in a format readable by PCs. This function is provided to give the programmer absolute control over the data streams that are written to stream files. While the system can automatically do some conversions (from ASCII to EBCDIC) it does not necessarily convert the data going the other way. This is particularly useful when you want to WebSmart program to create a file in the IFS which can then be accessed from a PC.
  8. Ability to continue working on the definition while generation is ongoing. Time saver, you don't have to wait and watch for the generation to end, you can dive back into coding right away.
  9. More repository synchronization options. Repository extensions synchronization not only happens more frequently, but can be triggered directly by pushing a button. While extensions will all get synchronized automatically through the course of using the tool, some users would rather have more control over exactly when the synchronization takes place.
  10. More intelligent user ID/password prompting when switching between systems. Tool detects if you are connecting to a different 400 and reprompts for a user ID and password.
  11. Increased the maximum number of segments.
  12. Visual identification of global extensions when working with repository extensions. Global extensions have their own icon so that you can tell at glance which extensions are global and which are not.
  13. Allow a definition with no segments. This is useful for batch programs (they used to have to have a dummy segment).
  14. Fields list now shows key field number. For quick programmer reference to see how their files are keyed.
  15. Ability to use Bookmarks in the editor For ease of jumping around the code.
  16. Faster color coding.
  17. Keyword syntax sensitive HTML color coding. If you mistype an HTML keyword it will not color code, thus providing instant feedback on the syntactical validity of your HTML.
  18. Error highlighting in the PML more obvious. The whole line in error is now changed to a different color, bringing more attention to it. Before it would just position the cursor at that line.
  19. Block indention support. If you have a whole bunch of lines that you want to indent, you used to have to press tab on every line. Now you can select the whole block and press tab once and it indents all the lines at one type. (same goes for 'outdenting')
  20. New function: crtlike. For creating a field which will mirror the attributes of another field. When the based on field attributes are changed, all the derived fields change too.
  21. New function: Closefile. When using overrides it is sometimes useful to close and reopen the file, this function allows for that scenario.
  22. New function: getdtaara
  23. New function: upddtaara
  24. New function: unlockdtaara
  25. For retrieving and changing data areas. These functions also allow the use of data areas as mutexes to prevent multiple programs from accessing certain resources simultaneously.
