All clients can be created equal
Since isCOBOL Evolve is Java based, developers leverage the same GUI, regardless if the client is Windows, UNIX, Mac, handheld, etc. The user interface and all of its program functionality developed in isCOBOL will work the same whether the application is deployed locally or distributed across a network -- simplifying development and maintenance.
isCOBOL Application Server provides a thin client that can be automatically downloaded and run as a standalone Java program. isCOBOL Application Server runs the application on the server machine with just the user interface running on the client. When running with a thin client, the user interface is identical with what is seen when running locally. In other words, the thin client user interface supports every window and graphical control type, style and property, as well as all text-based elements. There are no differences in the user interface when running locally verses thin client and developers do not need to "program to" or "design for" isCOBOL Application Server software's thin client capabilities. Once a user interface is working as desired in local mode it can then be deployed in thin client mode with complete confidence that there will be no differences across platforms.
