Frequent Flyer Subsystem is written in CGI/Perl. And FBN do not want to re-write it. I understand that Web client can directly send request to CGI/Perl script. But The question is how Java Application Client talk to CGI/Perl script?
just for the records: why should i know the API for interfacing FFM? It should be enough to know the principle, and that's clear readible in the requirements. I don't believe, we're supposed to provide a detailed interaction with the FFM - that would be a job for the designer. Am I wrong here?
Screen scraper, just like Annie said. Passing 1st exam, I'm sure you know the way, right?
I thought Ray was talking abt JCA (connector adapters) rather than screen scrapers. Screen scrapers don't sound like a good idea for the CGI app..its already web enabled, why would I need to circumvent it and go for the mainframe screens? HTTPConnection sounds like a simpler alternative.
