(E)JES Web is a Java-based web interface to (E)JES. (E)JES Web is included with the (E)JES product at no extra charge and made available through the same download process.
Every aspect of (E)JES Web has been designed to deliver the best possible performance. This has resulted in a modern GUI interface that very closely replicates (E)JES response times under ISPF. All (E)JES displays are fully supported, including time-oriented browsers like OPERLOG.
(E)JES Web is an ultra-thin, fully virtualized client with an intelligent server. Sorting, filtering, searching, and more are performed on the server where the data resides. The client is simply a user interface for requesting and viewing the results of these data manipulations.
(E)JES Web’s intuitive interface is ideal for users uncomfortable with a 3270 environment. Dropdown menus give users access to (E)JES displays as well as options that affect how data is presented on those displays. Right-clicking a row or rows in a tabular display results in a context-sensitive menu populated with line commands. (E)JES Web presents data in an elegant and obvious way. Most (E)JES Web features are discoverable, but online help for the (E)JES Web interface is available when needed. (E)JES Reference, Messages, and Release Information are also available from the Help menu.
The speed and functionality of (E)JES Web make it a useful tool for power users as well. Users can select tabular rows and access most line commands using only keyboard commands. Mainframe FIND capabilities such as PREFIX, SUFFIX, WORD, CHARS, HEX, etc. are fully supported on both browser and tabular displays. Most of the keyboard commands in (E)JES Web will be instantly recognizable to 3270 users. For instance, type F to open a FIND input field or / to open a system command input field. These are the same characters used on a command line in a 3270 environment.
