9.5 Moving the Order Entry server application to Java
So far, we have shown you how to move the user interface for the Order Entry application to a
client PC using Java. We have demonstrated how to do this while reusing much of the existing
RPG application. Now, we are ready to replace the RPG application with a Java version. The
primary benefit of this is to gain easier maintenance and portability of our application.
Next, we migrate the Order Entry application to Java on iSeries. We use the Java remote
method invocation interface to allow the client Java program to interface with the server Java
code. Figure 9-33 shows the new design.
