Developing a 3270 server

This section explains what you need to do to develop a 3270 server.

Your Blueworx Voice Response applications can use 3270 servers to access data stored on a 3270 host computer.

You can copy existing 3270 servers and modify them as required, or you can create new 3270 servers. To copy an existing 3270 server, you can either:

You can also copy the components (scripts and screens) of a selected server.

Note: If you import a different 3270 server which is already configured for use by one or more sessions, you must restart Blueworx Voice Response for the newly imported version of the 3270 server to be used by those sessions.

To create a new 3270 server (or to modify an existing 3270 server), you must be familiar with programming logic and with the script language statements described in 3270 script language statements. It is also very helpful if you understand how a 3270 server interacts with host applications and voice applications.
