Notice regarding WAM usage for web development in LANSA

Date: 24 August 2016
Product/Release: LANSA for the Web (WAMs) - All supported versions
Abstract: Some considerations in respect of WAM usage for the development of web applications
Submitted By: LANSA Technical Support
  • With the release of LANSA version 11 in 2005, the primary method for developing Web applications was through the use of Web Application Modules, commonly called WAMs.
  • The WAM architecture was built with regard to the browser and web technology available at the time and WAMs have been used by thousands of LANSA customers to build their Web applications.
  • Ten years on from 2005, the browser and web technology available is significantly different.
  • With the release of LANSA version 14 in 2015, Web Pages became LANSA‚Äôs preferred web development technology for developing new web applications. This new web capability allows the same RDML syntax used for developing desktop (rich client) applications to be used for developing web based applications in LANSA.
  • WAM enhancements were included in LANSA version 14. Future enhancements have been scaled back and will only be carried out as required to support new versions of supported host operating systems, plug-ins and HTTP Servers.
  • Support will continue to be provided in the usual manner.
  • More information can be obtained by contacting your local LANSA support centre.
