In this paper, the authors report the successful use of web-based interface to C++ compilers using mainframe. There are several benefits that make networked software desirable. A web-based application can be used remotely throughout any network connection. Any operating system can be used to access it, making it platform independent. There is no local installation or maintenance work necessary. Access can be controlled and limited if required by software license agreement. Internet Compilers Package (ICP) is an example of a networked software-engineering tool.
