To deploy your application on the Web via the Web runtime, you (the developer) have three tasks:
For details, see Setting Up a Web Site.
Minimally, this could mean creating a library file with your application resources and configuration files, but optionally, you can also add Web-related library routines. See Preparing Your ACUCOBOL-GT Application for the Web Runtime.
To do this, you typically embed the URL of the Web runtime along with the URL of your application on your Web page using an <OBJECT> element and the CODEBASE attribute. See Invoking Your COBOL Application with the Web Runtime.
Once your work is done, the user has only one or two tasks:
The Web runtime will install itself and launch your program automatically. Note that two dialog boxes may be displayed in the process: one containing a security message if required by the security setting of the user's browser, and the other containing a click-wrap license agreement from Micro Focus. For more information, see Security Warning Messages.
See How the Authorization File Works. If you write your application in such a way that the resources are accessed remotely (using AcuConnect and AcuServer), this step is not required.
