And in another post
Too many examples on the list of late have used proprietary internal
frameworks and frankly that's not showing anybody anything.

I don't agree Joe. Given that Aaron sells his tool set, it's as commercially available as EGL.

As a developer, I'd need to pay for EGL or Aaron's tools, or somebody else's, or find an open source
tool, or write it all myself from scratch.

Thus I think few developers would see any difference between:
Runtime.invokeREST (url, callBack);


WS_invoke(url: 80: req: rsp);

As Nathan said, if you want to debate IBM vs. the little guy, that's something else.

The big question I have if I've got an existing RPG process that needs the data from the web page, can
I invoke the EGL code you've posted somehow?

I already know I could use Aaron's.

I also know that EGL can call RPG.

But can RPG call EGL?
