3.2 Integrating with an Existing Web Site

If you already have an existing Web site, you can quickly integrate your LANSA applications into your Web site by simply including a link to the LANSA application from your selected HTML page.

The syntax of the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) to link to your LANSA applications is described in the 3.4 Uniform Resource Locator (URL) Syntax section of this guide. There is no limit to the number of links you can create. You can link to a LANSA process or directly to a LANSA function.

To use Multi-Tier deployment with a Web Server other than an IBM i, you must use LANSA Java Servlet Support or LANSA IIS-Plug-In.

Your existing Web site does not have to be running on an IBM i. Your existing Web Server can be running on any platform. The important thing is that you have a Data\Application Server that caters for your LANSA application. The URL is used to link your Web-enabled LANSA applications to your existing Web site.
