A method operating in a computing system that has at least one server and a multiplicity of clients coupled thereto. The server has a CPU executing a Web Server program and a repository coupled thereto for storing description language of a Form to be displayed. The server is coupled to a host having a CPU executing a legacy application containing the Form. At least one of the clients executes a Web browser program. The method of the present invention operates in the server and the client for supporting enterprise application data binding. The method in the server includes the steps of opening the Forms and requesting a first Form and associating data names with data values received from the host and sending them to the client. The client then locates a corresponding GUI Control and makes an association between each of the data names and a corresponding GUI Control and obtains the contents of each of the corresponding GUI Controls associated with a data name and places data value/data name into a buffer, Next, the server processes the contents of the buffer and sends it to the host, whereby the GUI Controls are displayed containing values and states from the Form.
