Overview

WebSphere® Host Access Transformation Services (HATS) delivers all the tools needed to help quickly and easily extend legacy applications to business partners, customers, and employees. HATS makes 3270 and 5250 applications available as HTML through the most popular Web browsers, while converting host screens to a Web look and feel. With HATS it is easy to improve the workflow and navigation of host applications without any access or modification to source code.

HATS has macro support that allows you to provide programmed navigation through multiple legacy screens to help improve the productivity and ease of use of your host applications. HATS enables such programmed access to a single host application, or can integrate screens from multiple host applications into a single Web interface. You can also use macros created in WebSphere Host On-Demand or WebSphere Host Publisher.

New in HATS V6.0

The focus for HATS V6.0 is usability. It empowers the next steps in transforming applications by making it easier to create and edit screen transformations, debug macros, and create custom components and widgets.

Description

The rules-based implementation of HATS can make it possible to extend virtually any 3270 or 5250 application to the Web within a single day of installing the software. The HATS rules define how the various host components can be transformed and represented as HTML. For example, the rules define whether selection lists should be represented as hot links, buttons, drop down menus, radio buttons, or a table. The HATS rules are applied in real-time to host screens to generate the corresponding Web pages for end users. These rules can eliminate the need to customize individual host screens and help significantly reduce the time to market for new Web-to-host projects. Virtually any host screen can be rendered according to the HATS' default values, or can be partially or fully customized according to the needs of the specific application.

HATS, together with IBM Software Development Platform provides a flexible and extensible environment in which to integrate host applications with Java™-based applications. Screens and data from multiple host sources can be combined with Java-based applications to create new WebSphere applications. Transactions with host systems can be encapsulated into reusable business objects, such as Web services, Java beans, or Enterprise Java Beans. HATS and IBM Software Development Platform wizards can be used to create Web pages that call these new business objects. IBM Software Development Platform wizards can also be used to create SQL queries, and business objects (Web services, Java beans, or Enterprise Java Beans) to execute these SQL queries.

HATS, in conjunction with IBM Software Development Platform, simplifies the creation of standard Web services interfaces to provide access to host applications. Web services protocols, such as Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Web Services Description Language (WSDL), are an efficient and reusable means of providing standardized access to your host systems.

The run-time components of HATS are generated by the HATS Toolkit and deployed to WebSphere Application Server or WebSphere Portal. The WebSphere platform provides support for the workload management features required for enterprise class scalability and availability. Load balancing and fail-over support functions, such as vertical and horizontal clustering, are handled by the WebSphere workload management.

New in HATS V6.0

Transformation and editing improvements: HATS components available in the Palette view. You can now open the HATS component "drawer" in the Palette view and "drag and drop" HATS components on to your Web page.

Prepopulate transformations with default rendering. Prepopulated transformations will be prefilled with the default rendering set. This will make it easier to customize a screen where you only want to change a few aspects of the default transformation.

Free layout mode in Page Designer. The free layout mode provides the ability to arrange components and widgets freely in the Design view of the JSP Editor. When moving a HATS component from one location to another, the Page Designer function in Rational® Studio automatically aligns components by creating the necessary table cells.

Use of properties view for modification of components, widgets and text replacement. When editing transformations, the properties view will now allow developers to change HATS components, including the component and widget settings and text replacement. Previously in HATS V5.0, users could only change the component settings via the Edit Host Component wizard.

Preview transformation in host terminal. The host terminal now contains a preview tab that will display a preview of how a screen will be rendered in the browser. This lets the developer decide quickly whether a modification to the default rendering or a screen customization is necessary.

Apply style sheets in Design view. The Design view will now apply Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to the Visual Component Tags (VCT). This allows developers to apply styles and adjust the effects via the design view before runtime operations.

Macro enhancements: Macro debug stepping. Macro stepping allows a single "step" through a macro, where a step is defined as playing one action or recognizing one screen. The stepping feature allows a user to narrow down a macro problem to a certain screen or action, thus improving problem resolution.

Component and widget enhancements: Enhanced subfile support. The 5250 subfile enhancements allow developers to select and define the different parts of a subfile on a captured screen to use for subfile recognition. Subfile rendering has been improved to allow additional rendering options of subfile data, plus rendering of foreground colors and extended field attributes.

Custom component and widget wizard. Two new wizards are provided to aid in the development of custom components and widgets.

Item selection component and widget. The item selection component and widget allows the rendering of a screen with a list of items and a respective action field for the item. The action field can be rendered with text input, drop-down, popup, link, check box or radio button.

Enhanced Non-programmable Terminal User Interface (ENPTUI) 5250 support. ENPTUI enables an enhanced user interface on non-programmable terminals (NPT) and programmable workstations (PWS) over the 5250 full-screen menu-driven interface, taking advantage of 5250 display data stream extensions. These extensions can be also accessed via the DDS programming interface. Graphical DDS keywords specify the GUI controls to be displayed.

HATS recognizes these 5250 display data stream extensions when used, and renders them into appropriate HTML controls, thereby web-enabling the original host application. The following subset of graphical DDS keywords are supported:

  • PSHBUTTON — Push buttons
  • MLTCHCFLD — Check boxes
  • SNGCHCFLD — Radio buttons
  • SFLSNGCHC — Single-selection list box
  • SFLMLTCHC — Multiple-selection list box
  • WINDOW — Popup window
  • MNUBAR — Menu bar
  • PULLDOWN — Pull-down menus

5250 HTML DDS keyword support. DDS programmers can use the HTML keyword to imbed raw HTML data into the 5250 data stream. HATS will enable data that is sent from a host application in the HTML DDS keyword to be rendered in the browser.

Highlight hidden fields. During development, you can chose to have hidden fields highlighted, and be warned when data selected on the screen contains hidden fields.

Rendering sets. You can create more than one rendering set for your application. Creating individual screen customization can be avoided by configuring additional rendering sets for host screens that are not rendered well with the default rendering.

Text replacement improvements: Default rendering and component tag level text replacement. HATS V5.0 supported text replacement at the project and screen customization levels. Runtime text replacement at the tag level was also supported. HATS V6.0 adds studio support for default rendering item and component tag level text replacement. All levels support text replacement with text, an image, or HTML.

Regular expression support for text replacement. Regular expressions are an extremely powerful tool for manipulating text and data. HATS V6.0 allows you to specify regular expressions for text to search for, and text or HTML to replace with when specifying text replacement for your HATS project, default rendering, screen customizations, and HATS components.

Inserting a button or link via text replacement. Text replacement now includes the ability to replace text with a button or link that sends the specified host key.

New capabilities: Identified next screens. Identified next screens allows the developer to identify potential next screens for a given recognized screen. This avoids the overhead of searching the whole screen customization list for a matching screen.

3270 CICS Basic Mapping Support (BMS) Importer. Developers can import Customer Information Control System Basic Mapping Support (CICS BMS) source. Screen captures can be created from the source, providing the ability to develop and design HATS screen customizations and transformations for CICS applications without the need for a live 3270 terminal connection.

Note: A terminal connection will be necessary to test the application.

JavaServer Faces (JSF) Pages support for Integration Objects. JSF is a technology that helps you build user interfaces for dynamic Web applications. Although similar to Struts, JSF provides a Faces components drawer in the Palette view that allows you to drag and drop Faces components onto your page.

Show Operator Information Area (OIA). HATS projects now automatically show the operator information area (OIA). Emulator users are accustomed to seeing the information that is presented via the OIA. Users can disable the OIA easily via the Other tab in the Project level settings. The OIA can also be inserted onto a transformation using the HATS tools menu.

Migration: If you are a previous HATS V4, HATS V5, HATS V4 Limited Edition (LE) or HATS V5 LE customer, you can migrate your projects to HATS V6.0 projects. If you are a Host Publisher V4.0 or V4.01 customer, you can migrate whole applications, or just the Integration Objects.

HATS coexistence. HATS V5.0 and HATS V6.0 can coexist on the same machine.

Additional enhancements: View display terminal in Studio. HATS V6.0 now presents an option to the display terminal when a developer invokes the run on server function without having to manually configure it. The display terminal is highly useful when debugging macro and screen recognition problems.

Rename Global variables. HATS V6.0 has the option to rename global variable instances in screen customizations and macros via the Global Variable view.

Specify Host Key. A developer can specify the execution of a host key after the completion of the action list in a screen customization. This feature allows the runtime to drive a host's screen transformation to change and avoid an infinite loop through the customization's action list.

Asynchronous update applet enhancements. The asynchronous update applet has been enhanced for improved reliability and error handling. The applet is now signed, so your HATS server can now be on a different host than your Web server.

Keyboard support when a host key is inserted. When a host key was inserted onto a transformation prior to HATS V6.0, any key not inserted became disabled via the keyboard. With HATS V6.0, the developer has the choice of enabling the keyboard or not when only one host key is inserted.

Handle blank screens. Some applications naturally have blank screens during HATS runtime. There are four options in HATS V6.0 that a developer can use to handle blank screens: show the blank screen, wait a period of time via a screen customization playing a macro, or send a specified host key.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

  • Interfaces commonly used by screen readers
  • Can be operated using only the keyboard
  • Allows the user to request more time to complete timed responses
  • Communicates all information independently of color
  • Provides documentation in an accessible format
  • Requires minimal reach and manual dexterity
  • Supports the attachment of alternative input and output devices

Limited warranty: Yes

Warranty: This program has warranty for a minimum of one year from acquisition from IBM or authorized IBM Business Partner. The warranty provided to the customer for at least one year from acquisition is access to databases (read Web sites) for program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or obtain otherwise and install at leisure.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program, return it within 30 days from the invoice date to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it for a refund. This applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Charging methods and entitlement

The following text is taken from the Program Unique Terms that accompany your purchase. This text is not inclusive. Additional details can be found in the Program Unique Terms.

HATS Toolkit

The license to the program entitles you to use the HATS Toolkit for an unlimited number of developers on an unlimited number of workstations for development purposes. Use of the HATS applications (run-time deployments), which are generated by the HATS Toolkit, must be in accordance with one of the charging methods below when deployed to production.

Charging methods

The program is available based on two charging methods: Registered Users and Concurrent Users. The number of program licenses purchased must equal the number of Registered Users and/or Concurrent Users accessing the program from the Internet and/or intranet. The Registered User charging method should be used in all cases where a user can be identified as a Registered User, as defined below. This includes access from the Internet and intranet. The Concurrent User charging method should only be used in cases where access is from the Internet and a user cannot be identified as a Registered User.

Connections (from either users or other applications) made to the program through other products that act as connection concentrators must be counted as program users and are subject to use-base charges based on the number of Registered Users or Concurrent Users of those concentrators.

Registered Users

A Registered User is defined as a person who accesses and uses (i) the program or (ii) a connection to an existing application from the program. A Registered User is considered a distinct user. A Registered User Authorization is required for each distinct person that will access and use the program. A Registered User license to the program entitles a distinct Registered User to access and use the components of the program.

Concurrent User

The program defines a Concurrent User as any user who cannot be distinctly identified but accesses and uses (i) the program or (ii) a connection to an existing application from the program. Examples of connections would be TN3270, TN5250, VT, or JDBC connections. A Concurrent User Authorization must be acquired for each Concurrent User and the total number of Concurrent User Authorizations must be equal to the maximum number of Concurrent Users that concurrently access and use the Program at any time. A Concurrent User license to the program entitles such user to access and use the components of the program as long as the total number of users concurrently accessing and using the components at any one time does not exceed the total number of Concurrent User authorizations you have acquired.

Software Maintenance applies: Yes

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances customer productivity, with voice and electronic access into IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option that is available.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions; and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.
