Using WebSphere, Java and COBOL to Implement a Business Application

Monday, January 1, 2001


In the fall of 1999 Iowa State University embarked on a new project to develop our Web-based Purchase Requisition and Routing system, which affected most areas of the Administrative Data Processing Center. We will first review the history of our current Web site, AccessPlus, then describe the architecture and technology we selected for this new application. Next we'll discuss our trials and tribulations during the project. We will close with a demonstration of our Purchase Requisition and Routing application.
