JET 3270 - Features/Benefits

JET 3270 support includes all Microsoft Windows operating System, Unix and Linux. See the Install / Requirements page for supported browsers and Java virtual machines.

JET 3270 works with any standard web server. JET 3270 uses Microsoft's Distribution Units technologies to install the JET 3270 class files on the client's hard disk. This means the class files are only downloaded from the web server to the client once, unless there is a new release at the web server. Thereafter, the JET 3270 applet is installed from the client hard drive. This improves performance noticably for clients with a slow link (i.e. 56kbps or slower)
