ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Oracle ESSO with Quick3270 (Mainframe emulator)


New request to configure an ESSO template for Quick3270.
Quick3270 is a terminal emulator for Windows that connects PCs to IBM's Mainframe systems.
Right now they're using IBM Personal Communications to connect to mainframe systems and we have fully functional templates in that case, but now they want to change to this new emulator and they requested us to create a template for this new software.

We have tried to configure a new Mainframe/Host template for Quick3270, but ESSO does not trigger. It does not recognize the application and we do not receive any pop up asking for credentials. We have tried to create the template using the wizard that appears when you click the ESSO icon that appears on the title bar, near the close icon (see Image 1), but it doesn't work, because ESSO detects the software as a Windows app and not as Host/Mainframe. For example with IBM Personal Communications, when you use this option, ESSO detects it as Mainframe.

Also we have tried to configure the template as a Windows application, but this is impossible because when we use the wizard, it does not detect any fields or buttons.

Do you know if there are any workaround or solution for this case? or in this case ESSO is not compatible with this application?
