Modernize Existing Legacy Apps using RDW
RDW is the RPG and DDS to Web Conversion component of WebSmart. You can use RDW to help incorporate discrete units of RPG business and programming logic and DDS screens into your WebSmart programs, or to migrate entire programs into WebSmart where you can modify them to make them work in a web environment. For example, you could convert a complex pricing routine from RPG to PML and encapsulate the resulting code in the IDE for use in any WebSmart program. Or if you are an experienced WebSmart programmer you can migrate an entire interactive application into the IDE and make the necessary modifications to make it work in WebSmart. Learn more about RDW.
