Visual Lansa provides an IDE environment in Windows where you can develop applications for many platforms as Windows, iSeries, AS/400, Unix, Linux and wireless devices.


Visual Lansa uses a common base for the rules of applications (repository) and a 4th generation programming language for development of Client and Server programs. The user can easily and quickly develop Internet and Client/Server applications by using only one programming language, regardless of the platform. It is easy to learn and without need to know the technical details of application deployment for every platform.


Visual Lansa offers:

  1. Use of a single development environment to build modern applications without the complexity of the new techniques (Java, XML,...)
  2. Faster application development and maintenance with significantly lower cost.
  3. Simplify integration with other applications - wherever they are - using out-of-the-box middleware.
  4. Easily change and modernize the applications appearance, without the need to change the business logic.
  5. Insure your knowledge of applications development against future technology changes.

Advanced development made simple


Develop and deploy high level Windows and Web applications, with access in DB2/400 and ODBC - compliant databases - utilizing Lansa's object repository technology.

Whoever understands use of fields and files and has basic programming knowle-dge may easily develop Client/Server or Web applications using Lansa. With the object repository technology you centralize the business logic and applications rules and you gain productivity. Using Visual Lansa the programmer has a power environment to design appearance and logic of the application.


Test and deploy to multiple platforms with ease


You can develop an application for a single system such as the iSeries or Windows today, then split and move programs and data (without changing the source code) to various platforms such as iSeries, Windows, UNIX, Linux and Web tomorrow. You may support 32-bit/64-bit iSeries AS400 or even wireless devices with only one source code. You may run tests of your application on a simple, single Windows system and then transfer it to whatever platform you required.


Advanced desktop integration


You may use Microsoft Word as a print engine or Microsoft Excel for representation or further processing of data, as also many other Windows applications that support ActiveX technology.
