Description
An existing insurance product based on mainframe 3270 cobol logic has been "client/server" - enabled without changing the core 3270 business functionality. This was achieved by using code translators and code generators for the old code and by dividing each program into a 3 tier architecture, which means the separation of I/O-, database - and processing logic. Now it was possible to use this "Enterprise Server" either with EDI applications or / and with a SmallTalk GUI (Fat Client).
