A 5250 terminal emulator for the AS/400 written in Java.

Documentation is available at: tn5250j.github.io

Build Status


This project was created because there was no terminal emulator for Linux with features like continued edit fields, gui windows, cursor progression fields, etc.

It was then open sourced to give something back to all those hackers and code churners that work so hard to provide the Linux and Open Source communities with quality work and software.

The original developer wanted it to work on different operating systems, thus Java giving the “J” at the end.


The project was previous hosted at sourceforge.net. But since 2016 has been migrated to GitHub.
