Re: [Tn5250j-general] TN5250J in WDSC/RDi

Roberto,

Perhaps Sourceforge can help you contact Kenneth.  I don't think that 
anyone else has Admin access to the project but perhaps there is a 
method for transferring administrative control on a project that has 
been abandoned by a project admin.  And, don't get me wrong, I don't 
think that Kenneth has truly abandoned the project but I have to 
believe that he would want the project to progress, as we all do. And he 
hasn't checked in for quite some time.

As a last resort, Davide's suggestion to fork the project would be a 
possibility although the tn5250j name and project site has enough 
traction that changing to a new project name and site might have *some* 
downside risk that people wouldn't identify this new effort with the old 
and think that tn5250j is dead.

Dear Roberto,

I'm only a consumer of open source projects, so I have a very little working 
knowledge about the rules of Sourceforge and the habits of managing open source 
projects, but ...
.. I think that if you and your group want start working on tn5250j there's no 
need to wait :
make a fork(), publish it on a public accessible subversion server, inform the 
tn5250j* group about your plans, milestones and releases and, In My Humble 
Opinion, things will magically happens.

BTW, I'm very interested on tn5250j in order to replace a battery of 5250 java 
screen scraping engines ...
http://www.rds-software.com/ita/Caratteristiche%20di%20Host2web.pdf

So my 2 (Euro) cents : don't hold your breath, cvs get the current release, 
make a svn vendor branch, synch it with your edition and republish it somewhere.

Se son rose, fioriranno
(~~ If it's a rose, it will bloom ~~)

My best regards,

David Grandi

Good morning Kenneth, 

I am Roberto Endrizzi from DeltaDator SpA, an Italian IT-company.
We are a group of 5 developers specialized in Java and ISeries.
We used tn5250j for years and we noticed that there hasn't been released new 
versions: so we would like to take care of the project.
One of our main ideas was to start fixing some bugs we found out using it 
and then add some new features such as The Printer Connections and a new 
Installation Wizard (more user-friendly). 

What do you think about it? Is it possible? 

Best regards,
Roberto Endrizzi

Now that sounds cool.
Hope you guys are accepted to join the project :-)

2008-09-09 Thread Pete Helgren
I think that would be great.  I have a slightly modified version that 
includes the STRPCO fixes and an issue with sessions starting/ending. I 
keep meaning to work through the bug list and get things moving again 
but i haven't had time.  There is always something more to do on other 
projects and tn5250j has been pretty stable, all in all. With Frank 
Hildebrandt doing some work with the WDSc plugin, it looks like 5250 is 
alive and well out there. Perhaps it is a good time to move the project 
forward again.

As long as it stays open source, I am all for someone with time and 
resources moving things forward again.  This is a great project and 
deserves a little attention.

I had seen this posted in WDSC in midrange.com as well.  I had been 
meaning to do this, since it seemed a natural as a plugin, but it had 
never made it to the top of my list. It was great that Frank shared this.


Glad to see that you are still alive!

Message body follows:

Hi,
 
we have created a little open source project to integrate  
TN5250J in WDSC/RDi. With this plugin it is no longer 
neccessary to leave the IDE if a 5250 session to the system 
i is needed. Further information about download and 
installation contains the following link.
 
http://www.taskforce-it.de/downloads/TN5250J%20Manual.pdf


We haven`t changed any code of TN5250J. All we needed was 
in the JAR tn5250j.


Greetings
 
Frank Hildebrandt
