Working with transformations

A transformation is either a JSP file (for Web projects) that defines how to customize specific host screens. When you create a transformation, you have the option of selecting the host screen on which the transformation will be based. The host screen can be based on a host terminal screen, or from a screen capture. A screen capture can be obtained from an imported BMS map (3270 only) or directly from the host terminal.

Applying a transformation is one of the possible actions of a screen event. Some common uses of transformations are:
  • Rearranging the presentation of host screen information.
  • Filtering host screen information that you do not want to show to users.
  • Presenting host components as widgets in the Web presentation.
