webAF software helps you build Java-based applications and Java applets that are lightweight, easy to manage, and instantly connect to SAS software. webAF software's flexible interface enables easy access to SAS software from Java classes, transparent access to SAS/AF objects, access to tables and MDDBs, and access to SAS compute power through procedure submissions. With webAF software you have:
Easy access to enterprise-wide information over the Web. Use webAF software to create user-friendly Java-based applications with simple, streamlined access to full SAS software capabilities--from data warehousing to decision support. Also get seamless access to a wide range of data sources, including major DBMSs (ORACLE, Sybase, Informix, DB2) on all major mainframe, UNIX and PC platforms.
Rapid application development and instant SAS connections. Never re-write code for different platforms again! Simply drag webAF software's pre-packaged SAS components to your application and you're connected to full SAS software capabilities. Or reuse code you've developed by creating objects yourself. Best of all, the objects you create using webAF software from SAS Institute are functionally identical on any platform.
Centralized application management. webAF software's unique n-tiered environment directs requests to the most appropriate SAS server, eliminating unnecessary server sessions and the time-consuming tasks of managing applications across multiple platforms and networks. Lightweight Java applets and applications built with webAF software are easily distributed, updated, and managed across the Web from one central location.
Integrated visual development with 100% Java, complete JDBC and JavaBean support. Industry-standard GUIs cut training costs and add consistency to your organization's information access. webAF software creates 100% Java applets and applications-without hidden tags or macros-so it's simple to integrate code from other application development tools. webAF software also integrates non SAS Java-based applications, all within a simple point-and-click visual development environment.
Take charge of your network and reduce expensive clients. webAF software helps you make the most of your current hardware and application resources, so you can avoid expensive full-featured clients. Using webAF software, you decide where data, computation, and application logic resides across multiple platforms and networks, so your network operates at peak performance.
