To all our Clients, Partners & Friends,
Hope your 2018 is off to a good start. We have many exciting things going on here at Prolifics. This year, we’ll be focusing on helping customers modernize their JAM, Prolifics, and Panther applications. One of our senior JAM/Panther architects has just released a White Paper and video to share information with you about modernization. If you’ve been wondering how you could modernize your applications, be sure to check out the link below.

From your Panther Product Support Team
Modernization: Replace, Rewrite or Reuse
After a number of years, an application will become outdated...

This is a fact; technology moves on, new devices and hardware become available. User expectations and ways of using applications have changed. Cloud, Internet of Things etc. are there to use and interact with.

As for the organization, new people with new skill sets join the team, and the existing ones gradually disappear taking their skill sets with them. Eventually the application looks ‘old and tired’ and now we don’t know what to do with it.

So, along comes the first management decision. “Is the application functionality still relevant for the business?” In many cases it is; we have built our business around the application and it does everything our business needs, but we would like it to do more.

Next comes the question; What shall we do with it? Do we leave it as is or do we modernize it?

Copying Excel Cells into Panther 
Viewing and manipulating data in a tabular arrangement is very powerful. It's no surprise that spreadsheet programs are a standard feature of office productivity suites. Furthermore, many users
expect to be able to copy and paste ranges of fields from one program to another, for example, from a spreadsheet program into a grid on a web page.

However, when one copies a range of cells on a spreadsheet program and then attempts to paste the data into a web page the results are, by default, not what one might expect. Support for copying one field at a time is provided by all web browsers but support for copying ranges of fields is not a given.
