Re: Can *SRVPGM call *PGM?

My associate has some *PGMs that he needs to call via JNI. He wanted to make
a service program out of them but he can't because he only has *PGMs, not
*MODULEs or source code. Could we make another "layer", i.e. a small
interface module that would reside in a *SRVPGM and then call the *PGMs?
This way the Java could load the *SRVPGM containing the small interface
module, call the interface, which would then call the *PGMs (which would
reside in a regular library)?

Sure ... a service program (in any language) can have a module that does a normal, non-bound, program call.


In RPG: call 'program'
In CL: call pgm(programname)
In COBOL: <shrug, got me>
