Migrating from the Web Plug-in to the Web Runtime

If you have already implemented the Web Plug-in control to provide Web access to your ACUCOBOL-GT application, read this section for information on how to upgrade your implementation to the Web runtime. You can add the appropriate HTML code to make the new Web runtime available to your users.

The major task is to invoke the Web runtime component from your HTML page. If you are distributing the Web runtime internally to users with no Internet access, you may need to supply it on your own media.

Although it is possible to invoke your application with the <EMBED> and <ANCHOR> tags as you have for the plug-in, we recommend that you invoke it with the <OBJECT> tag and the component's CLASSID. For more information, see Using the OBJECT Tag.
