Anita for the Web (Java)

Anita for the Web (Java)

Anita for the Web is written entirely in Java(TM). It conforms to the Java 2 SE specification and runs on a Java Virtual Machine version 1.2 or later. This means that Anita for the Web can run on any platform that supports this specification. Such platforms include Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris and UNIX as well as a range of thin-clients.

By choosing Anita for the Web as your terminal emulator, you gain workstation independence. You can easily migrate from one platform to another and without the problems of combining different types of workstation platforms. You are no longer tied to one specific hardware or software supplier.

Terminal Emulation

Anita supports a wide range of terminal emulations including DEC VT100, VT220, VT320, ANSI, Wyse60, and SCO Console emulations.

The easy to configure, 3-D box and colour options, allow you to assign such attributes even when running an existing application written for text based monochrome screens. Alternatively the colour can be controlled from the host with ANSI, ASCII or DEC VT525 colour commands. Anita allows you to add buttons and icons to your text-based applications, and even to send information to the host by clicking the mouse on your application’s screen.

Ease of Deployment

Anita gives you the choice of being deployed either as an application or as an applet. This means that you can choose to run Anita for the web either in its own window or in a web browser. Anita also supports deployment using Sun’s Java Web Start technology. In addition to being able to be loaded from your local workstation, Anita can be run from a network server – either a file server or a web server. The small size of the Anita for the Web code, means that it can be deployed not just on a Local-Area-Network server, but also on a Internet or Intranet Wide-Area-Network server. Additionally, Anita for the Web contains a JavaBean which can be deployed as part of a customer’s own application.

The ability to deploy Anita for the Web on a centralised server greatly simplifies both installation and maintenance. A single centrally stored version of Anita means that it can be easily upgraded and maintained. When new features are added to the product, the system administrator needs only to copy it onto the central server, then all users have access to the new version. In the same way, one or more centrally located configurations allow one configuration update to apply to all users.
