WOW: Tips and Tricks

.: Add a WOW Link to Your Existing RPG Green Screen Application

If you didn't already know, you can easily invoke a WOW application from a Client Access 5250 emulator session. This feature can help you integrate your existing RPG green screen applications with browser-based WOW applications.
1: Edit the preferences on your Client Access 5250 emulator (Personal Communications) session.

a) Edit > Preferences > Hot Spots
b) Check the “Execute URL” box.  If you would like the URL link to appear as a button, also check the “3-D Buttons” box. 

2: Alter your DDS/UIM to add one or more WOW URL’s to your green screen.   A sample link to invoke a WOW application would be:


In the link above:
  • wow64 is the web application folder
  • runApp tells WOW to run one of its defined applications
  • lvid=25 tells WOW the operation to be run has an id = 25
  • productNum=135663 is an optional runtime parameter passed to operation 25, which could be used in the operation’s SQL code to help alter the operation’s output:
          SELECT * FROM mylib.products WHERE productNum = ??^productNum
