Targeting Web 2.0 IT professionals and developers, this important resource provides essential information on IBMs Enterprise Generation Language (EGL) and the exciting new EGL Rich UI for the IBM i platform. The first half explains how the EGL Rich UI takes advantage of the powerful EGL syntax to provide increased flexibility while designing complex interactive user interfaces from the ground up. This can allow for building Rich Internet Applications that take advantage of popular frameworks such as Dojo and services from Google, all integrated together with EGL Rich UIs built-in widget library. Following is an exploration into harnessing IBM i, the new open and advanced business application server, through EGLs ability to make simple connections from rich clients to back end business services.
