A native Web Development Environment for IBM i™

Icebreak has an integrated development feature that allows developers to build and deploy Web applications using RPG, COBOL, C++ and even CLP. Technologies like SQL, XHTML, XML, Web Services, and AJAX are part of the toolbox.

IceBreak allows the separation of program business logic from the user interface developed in HTML, XHTML, or XML.

No Java, No Apache, No WebSphere... Just IceBreak!


The key aspects of IceBreak™

One of the key aspects of IceBreak is that users can develop their HTML screens in any development tool, including Visual Studio, RDi, or even a simple text editor like Notepad++. The actual HTML files are developed in the third-party HTML editor of your choice. The IceBreak development and runtime components handle the integration of HTML with the RPG or COBOL source. IceBreak actually borrows many aspects of the integrated ASP.NET-IIS development and runtime combo. The syntax used in IceBreak, is the same as you've got in ASP and just like in .NET. IceBreak has “Just In Time” compiler technology as design is similar to way that IIS is designed.
