Information System (called RIS/3 from

During the eight years of using RIS/2 in production
environments the structure of our data model could be adapted
to any need. Therefore a change of the data model for RIS/3
was not necessary - both versions can be used with the identical
Technology of Data Visualization
The main difference between RIS/2 and RIS/3
is in the area of data visualization.
Under RIS/2 the online-applications use Forms/3
of Oracle® and only support text mode. The
support of a graphical user interface is not possible.
RIS/3 gets rid of this restriction. It not only
supports a text mode interface but also standard browsers like
Internet Explorer and Mozilla.
New Repository for Forms and Reports
ISM has developed a general repository for
RIS/3 which contains the structures of forms and reports.
From this repository the administrator may either generate the
text mode application as under RIS/2 or the browser-application
Currently we support the Internet Explorer of
Microsoft® as well as Mozilla
The overview of the technological details is specified on the
ISM * JavaForms Technology data sheet.
