CM WebClient

Build Web and Mobile Applications from CA Plex Models

Web-enabling existing business logic is a cost effective and efficient approach to legacy modernization. The CM WebClient platform is a rich internet application (RIA) generator designed to work seamlessly with the CA Plex model-based rapid application development platform. The CM WebClient Ajax-based framework unlocks the promise of application generation directly from a CA Plex development environment. It enables complete web and mobile application generation from the front-end presentation layer (HTML, JavaScript, Ajax) to back end business logic (RPG, .NET or J2EE).
