JGS Tools


Jolly Giant Software includes several programs and tools with QWS3270 Secure.  For details on how to use these tools please see their associated help files.  The tools are:

  • JGS Script Editor™ - A utility that provides a GUI interface to allow scripts that run with QWS3270 Secure to be modified.  The JGS Script Editor can be used to edit existing scripts or create new scripts.
  • JGS LPD™ - A Line Printer Daemon for printing from the mainframe to the PC. The application works together with LPR (Line Print Requester) applications which send print requests to a system running the JGS LPD software.  JGS LPD accepts the print requests and redirects them to printers that are locally attached to the PC or are attached via the network.
  • .Net Automation
  • QWS3270 Automation - A help file for the COM/Automation component included with QWS3270 Secure.
  • QWS3287 Printer™ - allows you to route mainframe print data to a local printer by defining your PC printer as a 3287 line printer.
  • JGS Scratch Pad - A scratch pad for capturing text for later use from the emulator screen.
  • JGS Screen History - supports capturing of screen history, with the ability to go back and review past screens without affecting the current session.
