Not sure what you really mean.   "HLLAPI" is generally used via a 3270 emulator.  TN3270 is telnet 3270, which is over IP.  Most comercial TN3270 client have HLLAPI support.

Now if you mean HLLAPI code running on computer 1 accessing a TN3270 emulator running on another computer, I don't think so.  I don't remember any providing HLLAPI support over the network.

What are you attempting to do?

From a web application we need to screen scrape some elements from the users open mainframe session screen and pass it back to the web application.

Is the web code running on the same computer as the 3270 session?  If it is then yes, if it is not, nope you can't.

Does it have to be from a 3270 session on the users desktop?  Depending what the web application is written in there are Java based emulation package that can run inside a web application.  Things like IBM Host Publisher or HATS.  There are other packages like that.
