Openlook for RPG OA enables native RPG code (minus the 5250) to connect with modern devices, platforms and applications — including cloud-based technologies.
It enables RPG developers to create multiple UIs using a single handler and it enables blending RPG OA code with existing 5250 applications to ensure a strategic path that includes modernization and extension. Openlook eliminates the need to work with the 5250 data stream, enabling multi-channel UXs to be created directly from the RPG code, via the Openlook handler.
