The ZIETrans Toolkit is a set of plug-ins for the Eclipse-based IBM Rational® Software Delivery Platform (Rational SDP) where User can create Web applications that provide an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) for 3270 applications running on IBM® System z® platforms and 5250 applications running on IBM i operating system platforms.

The licensing tool integrated with HCL ZIETrans for licensing purpose in ZIETrans projects is Flexera, which provides a floating license model using the Flexera REST API client.

The usage of HCL ZIETrans sessions and requests are tracked and granted by Flexera licensing. For licensing to work in HCL ZIETrans applications, Flexera server and the required runtime properties need to be pre-configured.
