Attachmate EXTRA! has offered APL in their 3270 emulation for several
years.  It has APL2 characters on the keyboard map.  The product includes
a remapping utility although I've never tried to modify the APL layout.
I currently run "EXTRA! Extended for DOS" 2.21 as a DOS app. under

Attachmate told me recently that they will be adding APL support along
with host graphics support to their "EXTRA! for Windows" version.
