Converting cics screens to java/.net

Hi,

We are looking for options of converting CICS screens to a GUI
application (.net, Java, etc.) to increase the usability of the
screens. We would like to keep the underlying logic and database DB2 on
OS390, but the presentation layer would be different.

Some of the options are:
(1) Replacing CICS screen commands to a MQ message to communicate with
the front-end
(2) Re-writting the CICS programs in java/.net etc and connecting to
DB2 using DB2 connect and using stored procedures to access data.
(3) Using a tool like NeoKicks, HostBridge or using MicroFocus

Can you suggest us what mechanism (out of above or anything else you
are aware of) is most widely accepted in industry based upon
effectiveness, time, cost, performance and ease of implementation? Any
help, information and documentation on similar projects will be
helpful.

Thanks,
Lalit

IBM has tools which probably fall under your option 3. Check out
