Today MATTER OF FACT SOFTWARE announce the launch of CICS JS/Server Version 1 Release 0.

Modern business applications demand user interfaces with sophisticated features. Many such features are provided by web browsers that communicate with server technology to access corporate data and drive business processes. In many large corporations, the server of choice with which the browser communicates is the IBM mainframe.

Javascript tools such as Dojo have enabled the rapid development of browser based user interface functions. The Dojo toolkit itself has to be served to the browser and it is sensible to retain control over what is served up to the browser as part of a corporate business application. The CICS JS/Server allows the Dojo Javascript toolkit to be installed and controlled on the mainframe from well understood mainframe PDS datasets.

A Follow up poll to "Do you Telecommute? "

Almost 4 years ago we ran a poll on telecommuting. Due to some interest in the subject I decided to do a followup poll for comparison.
This is a multiple choice poll, thus you can select more than one option.

The previous poll allowed for "write-in" choices (user added choices), this poll will not allow for that.

And we are back!
