1.1 Why did LANSA add Web Technology to Visual LANSA?

Web technologies are evolving very quickly making it difficult for developers to keep on top of the game. LANSA's goal has always been to provide a single programming language that insulates developers from changes in the underlying web technology on both the server and the client.

To produce web-based applications, Visual LANSA takes full advantage of component-based techniques previously available in LANSA, including use of the LANSA repository and reusable parts that can be used on Windows, Web, 5250 and Linux.
