The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard is familiar with an early windowing system used
for OpenVMS VAX workstations -- the VAX Workstation Software (VWS)
package, a predecessor of DECwindows -- and VWS provided a programming
interface known as UIS. Later versions of VWS (eg V4.3) also provide
an API known as VAXuisx or UISX, an interface that allows various UIS
applications to display on the DECwindows X Windows interface.
Various VWS/UIS topics include (3183), (4177), (5316), and (9916).
The OpenVMS Wizard is also familiar with a UIS-ARCHIVE package that
was available from a company known as Raxco/UIS.
