FreeHost3270 Moved to SourceForge and the LGPL

FreeHost3270 (Formerly RightHost3270, a commmercial product I developed at one in a long line of failed startups) was open-sourcified today. FreeHost3270 is a web-enabling system for legacy TN3270 applications. It delivers java applet 3270 Emulators to a limitless number of clients and proxies their connections back to the Host. It also provides an API and default implementation of an HTML based 'screen-scrape'. The FreeHost system is developed in Java, and deployed as a standard Web Application Archive (WAR). It should work in any Servlet 2.2 compliant container. (It's been tested on Tomcat 3.2.1) The code is available from CVS, and there will be a WAR/binary release in the next few days.
