RE: Retrieving integer parameter after JT400 ProgramCall?



fixed

I've been using ProgramCall successfully for years. You have to get the
datatypes right and do the conversions, but once you've got one, all the
rest come pretty easily. And I have some with lots and lots of
parameters going both directions with lots of data types. What do think
is the advantage of PCML? Don't you have to do basically the same thing
in a different format?

You might want to take a look at PCML and using the
com.ibm.as400.data.ProgramCallDocument. It's MUCH better to deal with.

I second this suggestion ... PCML is much easier to deal with than
coding the parameters manually.
