DDS Conversion Overview

This module is specific to the IBM i platform.

Included in the Profound UI suite is a Green-screen DDS Conversion tool. Using its automated process, you can take your old green-screen DDS source files and quickly convert them into DDS source for Rich Display Files™. Rich Display Files™ are native IBM i objects that fully support a robust browser interface. They can be maintained through Profound UI's versatile visual design tool – Visual Designer.

With this process, you will completely eliminate all ties to the old 5250 character-based protocol for presenting your applications. Your original RPG programs are simply recompiled over the rich user interface definition stored in the new Rich Display Files™.
