What is the Visual LANSA Framework?

The Visual LANSA Framework (VLF) is a rapid application design and implementation extension for Visual LANSA.

Consider using it to design and implement your first LANSA applications.

The Framework uses a single application model that can be deployed to Windows (VLF-WIN) and/or Web (VLF-ONE):

 VLF helps you with these application lifecycle steps:


Prototype applications rapidly without writing any code, and use the executable prototype to communicate your intentions to your end-users. 


Use Microsoft or Google Material Design style user interfaces that are immediately familiar to your end-users, and that seamlessly work on small, medium and large screen devices.


Use RAMP tools within the Framework to modernize existing IBM i 5250 applications without any change to them.

Implementation and Deployment

Short coding and learning curves. As parts of your prototype are approved, replace them with real programs that you have coded or automatically generated.

Maintenance and Enhancement

The highly structured VLF design model makes maintaining and enhancing the application an efficient and disciplined process.
